Schools of yesteryear.IT'S possible we've never before managed to cram as many pupils on a Class Act double page spread!
The schools are Royds Hall Grammar School - a full complement of pupils and staff, by the looks of it, taken in May, 1938 - and Grace Ramsden School in Elland, a picture dating probably from the late 1940s or early 1950s.
The Royds Hall picture was so huge and detailed we have split it in two, which explains why a couple of people at the far right of the top picture appear on the far left of the middle one.
The Royds Hall picture is from Robert Taylor Robert Taylor or Bob Taylor may refer to:
"I'm of the generation of Harold Clough n. 1. A cleft in a hill; a ravine; a narrow valley.
2. A sluice used in returning water to a channel after depositing its sediment on the flooded land.
1. (Com.) An allowance in weighing. See Cloff. and Paul Peter Etches, whose photos (of Royds Hall School) you recently published," said Joy. "Many of the young people on this photo came from Huddersfield, so it will probably be of local interest."
