I tried to improve on the original It's on the right ... you be the judge. Cliffside entry in 1953, with the gym/office building in place. Compare with the 1940's picture elsewhere on this site.

Seems everyone takes a picture of the stage area. Anne Connolly wrote to say she thought this was Peter, the younger of her two brothers. It's been a long time, but I think I buy that! Since the Connollys and the Lilleys were next-door neighbors in South Charleston and good friends, it's reasonable that I'd have a picture of Peter. >>

<< My sister Ruth, on the left and an unidentified friend. Ruth went on to become Queen Guinevere in 1959 at Carlisle.
