Isn't the handwriting beautiful?
Anyone who has tried to correct current examination papers will know what I mean.

Thanks Annie for providing this amazing information.
I have found some names of neighbours my parents knew on the site.
I have a few tatty pages containing school register information that were being thrown out.
My Mum retrieved them many years ago when she was back in Ireland on holiday, I am not sure where they are but will try and find.
Great site!
Thanks
