Hmm..i used to Know Leonora well during my high sch days 1971-76)

During Olevel exams, the lower forms used to get 1/2 day as they needed the form-rooms for exams.

those days we used to β€˜stray’..for that free 1/2 day

Sometimes we used to travel down with train to leonora train station.

I rem the sugar factory n Maha Sabha sec sch were on 1 side..Roxy cinema was on the other side

the market used to be very big!! ..

going down on the Pub Rd..there was the  primary sch..(i went on a sch tour whn i was in primary sch  to this sch n the sugar factory)

1 of my gf lived in Deo Mahadeo St n i visited her very often …her house was across from the-back of the sch yard

another classmate lived opp the sch..theyhad a shop

many of my classmates were from this village..from Cow Dam, Parafield, Seafield..n Pub Rd

few lived  near to the Police Station..

Sukul son Kenny was mine, I heard he died a few years ago. I had contact with his Aunt in the UK and she told me.

Oudai shop, which of the kids, they had Ramesh, Dinesh, Mukesh, Prakash, Sita and another daughter. One had a foot problem. Ramesh was into music, he tried teaching me to play the tabla a few times, but I never got into it. Prakash went to Zeeburg school.

The sisters and Dinesh and Mukesh left Guyana first as far as I can remember

Presenter of video is little off track,Edinburg and Groeneveldt are not Leonora. Race track is at Edinburg and the mall is at Groeneveldt.Five villages (Sugar Estates) Cornelia Ida,Anna Catherina,Edinburg,Groeneveldt and Leonora make up Leonora Sugar Estate.

bai in my days every blasted area was Leonora to me up to the bridge between Leonora and Anna Catherina. All I use to know is Parafield and Seafield, and Groeneveldt
