Camp School


Early 1900s class at Camp School

This picture of Class 1 – presumably of the senior section  – is at Camp Board School in the early 1900s.

It was sent by Darren Stanton, whose family lived in Castle Road.  The photo probably includes one or more of his family, but so far, no-one has been identified.
