'And finally, not everyone’s being doing topical. In fact, here’s the rather lovely 6 Oxgangs Avenue devoted to the history of the development of the area, this week highlighting how the block of flats came into being. Could have been prompted by Who do you think you are? Or just a timely reminder that not everything worth blogging about is in the here and now.'

Miss Elizabeth Sulley-The Creme de la Creme

Thanks for the reminiscences about Elizabeth. She was my aunt, and my mother now lives in her old flat in Trinity.

Ralph,
Thanks for the e mail-a good chunk was based on me surmising and making leaps of faith, so I hope I didn't get too much wrong. I re-read it for the first time in a long while and don't think I quite did her justice. She was a very positive influence on me; a very fine teacher too and a wonderful character.
Best.
Peter

I have no recollection of Miss Sulley, I was at Hunters Tryst from '72 to about '75, its possible I may have been taught by her. I can only recall very few teachers. I'm aware of a story about her playing the mouth organ while pupils filed into the classroom, a real character she must have been.
