AS it is summer holidays time, we are giving School Yard a week off this week and using two pictures that will bring back memories of a time slightly after we left school.

And you've heard of the Two Ronnies. These memories come courtesy of the two Barries!

The first comes from Harry Cohen, of Kings Road, Upton Park, who takes us back to 1960/61, when he and his friends used to make for the Kursal caf� in Southend every Tuesday.

"We went there every Tuesday evening on our bikes," said Harry.

Harry added: "We also went to Vicarage Youth Centre in East Ham. If anyone can rem,ember those days feel free to phone me on 07966 973767 or 07999 288333 or (020)8 586 9644." Or you can e-mail Harry at dumbidike1941@yahoo.co.uk

Our second picture comes from another Harry, Harry the ex milkman who says he is "still rounding up the past!"

He sends a picture that is marked from pre 1914.

"This could be a real puzzle for your readers. Perhaps someone's granddad or old uncle could tell us more. They seem to have done very well, looking at the size of the cup. But who are they? " said Harry, who lives in Essex.

He thinks the team are members of Plaistow Athletic Club and includes someone called Bonsor in the picture. They lived in Brooks Road.

Another brilliant pair of memories...thanks to the two Barries!
