Burn Valley late 1940s

What we know about this image :

The photo shows Lily Jenkins in the Burn Valley beside the 'Peter Pan pond' . This was filled in some years ago and an adventure playground has been built where it was. The statue of Peter Pan was often stolen and replaced. In the background is Claremont, a Victorian villa which,after being a private home, was first a special school for children with learning needs and before being demolished was Hartlepool Teachers' Centre. Sheltered housing was then built on the site but this is now demolished and recently a retirement development is in its place.
