The best days of their lives, from the 1940s

This fantastic blast from the past shows pupils at Kidgate School smiling for the camera way back in 1947/8.

The response we had to our Kidgate pictures earlier this year meant we’ve dug deep in the Leader archives to find another photo from yesteryear to share with our readers.

Are you or is anyone you know in the picture?

Do you have a great image from the past to share? Email it to or drop it into the Leader office in Eastgate, Louth and we will scan it for the paper.
