Crescent School Photograph

Can you tell us more about this photo?

Thanks to the eagle eyes and expert eBaying skills of Foundation Bursar, OP and OC, Eddie Tolcher, we were able to secure an early photograph of Crescent School shortly before Christmas. This was particularly exciting as we have very few records dating from the early days of the Crescent School. The seller had listed it as being from 1946 but there was no other information attached. Our initial thoughts were that the photograph was a whole school photograph and likely to date from at least 1947 as the school did not move to Horton Crescent, which can be seen in the background, until then. It is possibly dated even later given the number of children in the photograph.

This is also where we are asking for your help – are you in the photograph and can tell us more about it? Do you recognise anyone in the photograph? Can you help us establish a more accurate date? Any help that you can give would be much appreciated, you can email oldprincethorpians@princethorpe.co.uk.
