  • This is all getting a bit wordy...just text and talking heads. It might have been better as a page of text and one illustration. But I decided to stick to this layout. Sorry about that.

  • Very interesting to see how your life panned out with your excellent drawings. My art education started when I went to work.

  • Great work Lewis. I enjoy your stories. Not too wordy I think.

  • It works fine , Lewis , - our O levels were the end of the 5th year - I think we had the pleasure of being the first set of students to take this particular set of exams. After this , one either left and started work (which I did as a tannery cadet) or continued through 6th form and took A levels with "Uni" beckoning afterwards. Can remember a few of those school teachers looking like your "head " - including the odd lady teacher at the junior school - she had one of the hardest right clips to the face it was my misfortune to receive - just for asking a question !! I can still remember her name !!!

  • Thanks for your great feedback everybody. You might be right about the 6th form, Mike, I can remember some things clearly, others are a bit fuzzy. I know we had our 'O' levels when I was that's after January, 1956. When we came back from holidays I think we 'became' the 6th form...but I didn't stay long. The one thing I DO remember is how uncertain I felt about staying or leaving.

  • Enjoyed your story and the art. I had the chance to go to art college but ended up doing a 'proper course' in shorthand and typewriting which I always hated. Hadn't thought of teaching art as was never given good advice in those days - very confusing.
