School Photographs

By Robin Whyte, OTT 878, 1964-71 on Tuesday, May 21, 2002 - 03:42 pm: At the recent BOOBS meeting some interest was expressed in locating the 1970 school photograph that was cancelled. I have been in touch with Gillman and Soame who took the school photographs from 1969 to 1979. There is no negative for 1970, so it must have been destroyed. However Gillman and Soame still have the negatives for all the other years between 1969 and 1979. Was there a 1980 photograph? If anyone is interested in obtaining a reprint from these years, Gillman and Soame can do this for you but it will cost a bit as they are printing 'one off' pictures. For an unmounted print it will cost around £30, for one mounted in a frame and printed title around £80! The company has a web site at and can be contacted by telephone on 01865 263600. Incidentally, what happened to all the photographs mounted around the hall outside the HM's study?
