A mystery of time and place – can you solve it please?

While I’m very busy elsewhere (sorry folks for continued low output), the local history work continues in the background, via the tireless and thorough work of folk like the young David Evans, who’s turned up a mystery photo in a collection he’s been donated.

David feels the photo is local, and possible the early part of last century.

Does anyone recognise this, either via the schoolroom or anyone in it?

It’s a very interesting one. David feels in may be as early as the 1920s, but to me the dress seems a little too modern and well to do.

I’m thinking more 30s/40s maybe even 1950s? Don’t know.

If you can help please do: Comment here or mail me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. You can, of course, always find me on social media somewhere too.

My thanks to David, all the blog contributors and readers for their patience with my absence at this time. It is certainly true we live in unprecedented times and they’re keeping me flat out. Sorry.

A school room, we think maybe local. Why is the lass in the foreground holding up a number 2? Love the flowers on teacher’s desk, suggesting maybe this was a lady teachers class. Click for a larger version, image kindly scanned and donated by David Evans.

    It is difficult to make out the pictures on the wall, but they look a bit like coastal scenes ?

    My doppelganger is seated far right middle row, so eerie.
