As a /general/ rule, was it the custom to take class photographs at the start of the school year, or at the end?
(I have to ask, because I never went to a school that took class photographs)
Good to see this photo. If you go to the entry for Schools, to 26/7/12 there are two more pictures from the school in the forties, and having seen your entry I am wondering if I have the years correct on my submission. I remember life in the village with much fondness.
