    This one is lovely! I especially like the shot of the book with the chairs in the background

    [QUOTE=oldscrote;325857 and a room divider to convert 2 classrooms into one hall[/QUOTE]

    Also don't forget that at that time the girls and boys were kept separate during lessons and at 'play times' - hence another reason for the divider in the hall. In more populated areas it was more usual to see individual boy's and girl's school buildings or where there was only a single building, there were clearly defined girl's and boy's entrances and the playground was divided by a six foot brick wall - a segregation that was carried on with the separate, new build girl's and boy's secondary schools in the 60's.

    Very nice report of a typical Victorian small school - attendance there would be a very rude awakening for todays kids! You have captured the ever present loosing battle of man made structure over encroaching mother nature beautifully Rubex! Some of the most telling interior shots I have seen for some time with wonderful, true to life colour rendition. Thanks for presenting these images so truthfully, a really enjoyable report.
