Dersingham School Class Photograph - 1914 - Class E1
For names see E2 below, taken at the same time with the same children but has subtle differences.
Above left we have found images from later years with Mr. Clarke. Mr. Wheeler, Elsie Crowe, Polly Hudson, Miss Caitlin and Miss Alexander
In the picture on the right is Elton O. Wheeler, Headmaster, and Mr. Clarke, probably the Deputy Head. Mr. Wheeler took over after Mr. Firth.
Below is a photo of the Chapel opposite the school where the cookery class was held. The girls in the class photograph are identified from the left but our source does not say if it is from front to back or vice versa:
Left: Cissie Lines, Edie Reynolds, May Clayton, Sylvia Shepherd, Ethel Bird, Nancy Haslow
Middle: Eva ?, Irene? Doris Johnston, Annie Biggs, Nellie Welhams, Phyllis Grief
Right: Mary Lee, Phyllis Green, Ada Jakeman, Betty Bird, Lorna Nurse, Audrey Meech
Dersingham children off for a school treat.
On the left is Mr. Alfred Firth and another with staff. Neither are very good copies I am afraid; better copies would be welcomed
