    Memories from an elderly Mosley descendant.

    “I went to Crookes Endowed School in Sheffield. The bottom floor was for the boys and the top floor was occupied by the girls. We never mixed at all. My future husband unknown to me then, was there at the same time as me!

    Next to the school was the Wesley Hall which had a cinematograph at the weekend and nearby was also the St. Thomas church which had connections with our school (we were a church school)

    The head teacher of the boys school was Arthur Clifford Baynes known also as Stainless Stephen. He was a well known radio and music hall comedian whose appearance included a bowler hat with a steel band around it and a stainless steel vest which were to represent the Sheffield steel industries”.

    Is there anyone who also has memories of Stainless Stephen?

    ‘Stainless’ was obviously well known at the time and no doubt a hit with his pupils!
