Stella Maris Primary School is now on this spot. In October 1933, work began on the site, to plans drawn by Mr. E J Walters, and little more than six months later all was complete. On April 18 1934, his Eminence Cardinal Francis Bourne formally opened the new school, dedicating it to our Lady under the title of 'Stella Maris'.

Why does this say "Unlocated", when it is very clearly located in Folkestone?

Hi Nicholas,

In answer to your question, we allow plenty of time for website users to view Unlocated images and comment on them. Although sometimes someone is able to identify a location very quickly, it is often the case that it takes a discussion about the location to finally fix on an answer. It also helps to have extra information - for example, a group of pins on the image indicating the relevant road names and buildings, or comments explaining features in the photo.

For this image, the identification is correct and the information about the roads and buildings is really useful. Thanks to everyone's help we can update the catalogue, and the revised record will appear here in due course. This means that instead of "Unlocated", the image will have a caption, and we'll confirm the twelve figure grid-reference.

Yours, Katy

In front of the Hospital (the big building in the middle) is a field (?tennis court), which is now part of Radnor Park. The big road to the right is Radnor Park Road.

The blue dot at far right is now the fire station at the start of Park Farm Road.

First time I've done any of this identification!

I now see that "Paulo" has identified most of these correctly.

Does anybody have an idea as to the purpose of the buildings behind the Hospital, on the other side of the Pent Stream. Could it be a council depot with nurseries adjacent?
