Scope and content

A bundle of photographs, some apparently taken from a scrap book, showing school activities from the late 1940s to early 1960s. Activities include harvest festivals, nativity plays, coronation parade (1953) etc. Also included is a 1927 teachers report from Furzedown Training College for Irene Eveline Barnett. As the collection also includes a couple of personal photographs, it is likely that the collection came from her family.
