Pictures of the Old School

Here are some pictures of the old school.  Some were from old school magazines; others were kindly sent to me recently by the great-great grandniece of Carolyn Stahl from her Aunt "Josie's" collection.  Some of these pictures have notes written by Carolyn Stahl.

School photo circa 1940.  The pupils and staff are together on the playing field below the main school building.  As the tree dahlias are in blossom the time of year could be autumn.  The original black and white photograph from the collection of Mrs Enid Weggery,  As Enid Arnland, she boarded at Mount Hermon from 1931-1941.  Enid now lives in New Zealand.  The photo has been hand coloured by Jane, a friend of the family.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see it in larger size.
