    Hugh: yes, though not necessarily the house shown in this photo. Mary Sanpher appears in the 1947 school photo: http://stanhoe.org/gallery/picture.php?/119/search/86.

    The inscription on a book I recently acquired reads:

    Mary Sanpher

    King's Lynn
    Norfolk
    Aged 11 years
    Xmas 194? Dec 25
    Would this be the address mentioned?
