Mr Carey - 1950's rather than 1960's

Mr Carey, 1950's rather than 1960's I believe. Definitely his sons (right) who I believe were at Purley in the late 1950's. Not sure whether ladies are mother and wife or wife and daughter, probably latter. Background is Placehouse Lane, so taken close to junior gates. 

Fas et Patria

Please explore the world of Purley Boys School 1914-1988. Feel free to leave your memories and comments on the photos.
