Where did all the Nuns go?
We were taught by the Order of the Sisters of Mercy, although a better name for them would have been “The Sisters of – I- can- see- you- boys- back- there- and- so- can –the- lord”
I saw my first Nun in 1960 when I was five years old. I’d never seen anyone dressed like that. I thought maybe she’s d done something wrong and this was the punishment, or she was, as we use to say "a bit slow", and they made her dress like that in case she wondered off and they had to go find her.
This wasn’t my school but it easily could have been since this is exactly what we looked like...we even had those desks you see here that were connected to each other and had an ink well hole towards front and little holding pencil for your pencil
