ladies cricket Whit Monday 1900

Ladies cricket on Whit Monday 1900. This is one of two photo's from the year 1900.

A School meal in the Dining Hall - Peace Day 1902.

Another remarkable photo. No one is eating but food is on the plates so perhaps it can be assumed that all have been told to remain absolutely still while the photograph is taken.

J. Spencer Hodgsons - "Story Telling" 1903It is not often the Archive album gives more than a short caption.  This is an exception:

Story Telling 16th Sept 1903 from the left J. Spencer Hodgsons Irene Corner, Flossie Hobson, Madeline Hall, Gwendoline Brown, Margaretb Snowdon, Greta West, Ernestine Wilson, Olive Cuthbert, Kate Pounder, Kate Brown, Rosie Littlefair, Alice Winward.

A group of boys on the playground in front of the Schoolroom and Sanatorium

A group of boys in 1903 on the playground. The buildings in the background are identified as the Schoolroom and the Sanatorium.

A group of girls at play 1909

The caption in the Archives album is: "One vast substantial smile," and is dated July 1904.

In the full size it really is a very happy scene.

This photograph dates from 1905 and is titled: "The Maypole Pastoral General Meeting." 

It would be interesting to know the significance of this ceremony in a Quaker school. 

Dancing around the Maypole 1905

Girls on a swing 1905


Girls on a swing 1905. Pretty vigorous and the fact that this was photographed indicates the activity was encouraged.

In later School years would this have been considered the nice thing for young ladies to be doing?
