This group of boys is doing some gardening alongside the Lodge. The photo is from the Shields Gazette, dated Tuesday, 5th November, and was taken by the main school entrance in Mowbray Road.
The boys, from left to right are:
Doug Eltringham, Mavin, Bert Adamson, Pollard, Rex Turnbull (possibly), John Pummel, Grant Blythman, Clifford Almond, Lyndon Weight, Ramsay Wann, John Lucas, Bob Snelgrove - and on the far right is the Headmaster, Bill Lucas.
Many thanks to Lyndon Weight for providing the new information.
The photo is a copy of a copy of the Gazette's photo - does anyone have a better copy?
