Thanks for the great response yesterday to Adrian Reid’s enquiry for the Watling Street School anniversary book; whilst copies to own are apparently very, very thin on the ground, it seems they can at least be borrowed for study. Cheers to all who responded, I’ve emailed Adrian accordingly.
In the meantime, friend of the blog Alan Harvey sent me the above picture, with this accompanying note:
This maybe of interest to your reader who is after information on the above. It’s an old photo taken there about 1903. I’m afraid that I can’t identify any one except the little girl third in from the right, third row back; she is Agnes Deans my grandmother.
I’m not photo-retoucher, but I’ve had a go at pulling some of the detail out in Aperture. This may or may not help.
If you can put a name to anyone pictured here, or have any further material relating to Watling Street School, please do comment or email me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
Cheers, as ever.
