THIS week's Days of the Old School Yard comes from way back in 1975.
It comes from reader Olu Oyenigba.
He tells us: "I read your very interesting and regular column on past school photographs in the Newham Recorder, Days of the Old School Yard, every week.
"I am sending you an old school photograph of the 4th and last year of our school class 34 years ago.
"The school is Park Primary School in Matthews Park Avenue in Stratford E.15. The school is opposite West Ham Park and this mixed classroom photo has 28 children standing and kneeling with our school teacher Ms Rooke.
"We are in our final year (4th year) and this is our last photograph together in 1975 before we move onto Secondary school.
