Harry Rutherford's Festival of Britain Mural
The first thing I notice was the brickwork and old it looked then... I wonder when the building went up..As your say Nancy, looking at these old pictures some of the faces do look familiar.. A while be we showed some pictures from Hyde Chapel and Enfield Street. I thought then I recognised many of the faces, then when I was typing up the names I realised I was looking at the parents of some of the children I went to school with. at Enfield Street.The teacher would not look out of place as a gun-slinger from an old western, I could see him stood shoulder to shoulder with Wild Bill Hickok.
The little one on the front row ,far right looks like one of the New family that I was at school with. There's a chance it could be some relation I suppose.
This is an amazing picture. The childrens clothes are really interesting. How lucky they were to be at school.I wonder if they knew what was happening when the picture was taken. Photos were rare things at this time.
I like the ones peering through the window at the back!
Yes. It must have been a big event! Look at the ties the ones in the front row have to hold their socks up.
Well spotted Dave... I'd looked at the window myself and not noticed the faces. Great picture for sure.
