School Photos from the Archives

Again, thanks are due to Peter Dawson, who managed to get the permissions needed to access these photos from Coventry archives, to whom we are most thankful. These were taken quickly via Peter's Mobile and will be replaced when Peter has got better versions via a camera. They are a varied bunch of photos from the 40's to 70's. Enjoy.
