High School Field 1912

What we know about this image :

Taken not long after the school opened, the girls are playing on grass tennis courts on the Elwick Road side of the school where Eldon Grove Nursery yard now stands.

In the background are the Victorian houses in Belmont Gardens and behind them Eamont Gardens. There are significant gaps at the  Elwick Road end of Belmont Gardens as a long terrace of houses on the west side would be built after the  photo was taken. 

The house on the far right is the old caretaker's house for Elwick Road School which is still there as a private residence next to the car park for Elwick Grange Care Home. This car park was originally Elwick Road School playground.
