from Alun C Davies & John Samuel
A joint contribution from Alun C Davies, past pupil 1948-56, and John Samuel, 1952–60
who have sent in this photograph that includes Alun’s uncle and John’s father.
Class 3 Classical in 1926.
The location of this photograph is the Main Hall (Gadlys End). The double doors, on
the left, led to the corridor off which Rooms 2 & 3 were to be found. The door
under one of the pictures opened into a room that over time served several purposes. In the 1960s it was the room of school secretary Jennie Williams.
At various periods the Main Hall was used as a teaching area, hence the desks (forms) in this photograph.
