Boys in PE

What we know about this image :

This image shows some Elwick Road boys in PE. The halls at Elwick Road both in the junior department downstairs and the secondary upstairs had partitions which separated the girls' schools from the boys'. They were opened once a year at Christmas. The boys enjoyed climbing the ropes for obvious reasons as the partitions had windows above head height!

The photos is from about 1954 and Brian Tunstall is one of the boys on the photo who told us this tale!

The boy who can be seen on the rope, third from the left, is Les Dickinson.
