Recognise anyone? Verdala 1954/5232 viewsAnne Richards writes "My mother, Mrs Margaret Cooke, was a teacher at Tal-Handaq in 1954 and transferred to Verdala in 1954/5. She must have left after my brother was born in August 1955. This photo was found amongst her papers and I believe it may be Verdala and would very much like to know whether anyone recognises themselves in the picture - probably 1954-5? My Mother is the teacher in the photo and the artwork on the walls is her work. Thank you."adminNov 02, 2021
