For how the pupils and staff lived, see the top menu.

This page shows class year photos of pupils and teachers at Silver Street School, Edmonton, north London. Unfortunately they are not dated, and in fact they arrived with no additional information at all. Probably though, they were taken sometime in the 1950s.

There are larger versions of the first three photos, to let you more easily recognise family members. Just click on this page's photo. The final two photos, being of small groups, already show each boy at quite a large size.
