1936. Ovaltine Advert. (Photo's. Cage Green Primary School c1982)




I loved Ovaltine granules,
when I was at the newly opened Cage Green school in the early 1950's,
my mum would put some in a paper bag with some sugar for my playtime break.


The school was originally just a single story building,
the two story part was added later to accommodate the first pupil intake as they became juniors, and the growing population produced more infants!


The two story addition.
