Elwick Road School from rear 1999

What we know about this image :

Taken in 1999 at the rear of the school the boys department was to the left, the girls to the right.

The playground did, until it was part of the 6th Form College, have a brick wall to separate boys and girls and,certainly in the 1960s and before, children were often reprimanded for talking to the opposite sex through the gate.  The additonal brickwork above the Boys and Girls rear entrances were added circa early 1950's for the Senior Boys Headmaster and the Senior Girls Headmistress
