Washington Glebe School Trophy - Cycling Proficiency Tests, 1956
Thanks to Ken Reay for supplying this photograph, dated 19th July 1956. It shows some of the pupils who took part in that year's Cycling Proficiency Tests.
The tests were open to all schools in the Washington area and were held near Gainsborough Avenue / Reynolds Avenue, close to Oxclose Road.
Ken says, "I think this Sunderland Echo photograph was taken behind the Victoria Hotel." That's him holding the Winner's Trophy!
It was presented by Washington UDC Chairman W. Trotter JP. Terence Smith of Usworth School is on the far right.
