Anyone got any memories of St Chad's RC infants in Cheetham?  Or St Clares' RC juniors, Victoria Avenue, Blackley?  Or Salford College of Technology, aka saltec?

Hello Violet.  There' a discussion going on about St Chads over on the Cheetham Hill 50s/60s thread.  It may well have had an entrance on Southall St, so could be the same. When did you attend the school?

Thought I'd throw this into the mix - might stir some memories - tagged as Southall Street School -1906.

I'm admiring the architecture of the whole street
