 The missing corner of the 1954 panorama has now been patched in, thanks to Janet Collier, who enquired amongst her friends for a complete copy of the original.
 It was supplied by Janet's cousin, Glenys Finniear (nee Isaacs), whose brother-in-law Colin is on the extreme right of the boys lined up in the back row.

School Panoramas
Below are low resolution images of the school panoramas for 1951, 1954, 1957 and 1960.
Right-click with your mouse on the photograph
; Select Save Target as...; confirm where on your computer you want to save the file;
Click OK; and the file will download onto your computer.
As low resolution images, they are best viewed on your computer screen as they are over four feet wide.
Unfortunately, because of the size of the files, it is not possible to make hi-res files available. Neither can I offer prints of the photographs.
Although, for over forty years, one of my specialities was unframed or framed and mounted panoramic photographs - some over 40 feet in width - the laboratory I used has gone out of business, and I have been unable to find another which produces work of comparable quality.

So, here they are: copies of the sort of archive records that attract so much attention when they are produced at the reunions. Please enjoy!
