Title: Hall Drive schools of yesteryear
Post by: Ben G on August 20, 2021, 11:14:50 AM
Passed down that way earlier and noted that a small area that once had four different schools now has just the one.

Which one was yours?

Never understood how Hustler and Boynton worked with being in the same building.

Did they share classrooms ?

My grandad was caretaker there in Hustler when we came back from Canada in 75 so that swimming pool was my playground in 1975. The pool around the theatre at Boyntom was full of tadpoles. Big part of my childhood that place

We had our weekly swimming class in that pool even.

It had a very pronounced drop from shallow to deep end.
