This photograph was most likely taken inside The Grange, St Augustine’s Road, c.1975.
L-R: Father Patrick Whelan, Maud Lelean, Father Edward Hull.
Father Patrick from Ireland was maths teacher at the fee-paying private school, St Augustine’s Abbey School in St Augustine’s Road.
Maud Lelean was housekeeper at the old flint presbytery in Hereson Road, to Edward Hull, who unfortunately were both killed there in 1980 by an escaped convict from Scotland.  I don’t know why the beautiful flint house was demolished and a modern one built in its place.  Perhaps it was something to do with that tragedy?

Alma Place Infants School playground, 1958.
L-R: Sister Edna and Sister Keeren, both from Ireland.  They were the only teachers at this two-roomed school.
Photographer:  Malcolm Mills.
About twenty years after this photo was taken, the playground where the two nuns are standing was being used as a car park, and a few years later some rabbit hutc….I mean….small houses were built on the site.
