Perhaps you recognise the classroom or some of the children in it. The image was found in our archives, languishing at the bottom of a box, minus its caption. The only other information was on the back of the picture, which included the date given.

Children sit on wooden chairs, at wooden-topped desks, whereas most schools today will have plastic chairs and formica-topped desks. It appears there is some sort of art class in progress while one pupil sits and reads with the teacher (just off picture, to the right)

A larger image of the class is available to view on our website.

If you recognise anyone in the picture, let us know.
