IT was 1968: the year when Britain's foreign secretary George Brown resigned after reportedly being drunk the night before and failing to attend an emergency meeting of the Privy Council, and when Dad's Army first aired on BBC TV. But what was happening on the home front?

Our rummage in the picture archives has come up with these views from an open day at St Joseph's RC School in Workington. They speak of attitudes of the time (the girls in a fashion show and in the domestic science room, the boys in the science lab and workshops) but they also offer a chance to wallow in a bit of nostalgia – perhaps you recognise yourself or a long-forgotten friend?
