St Bartholomew's National School, early 1900s

This excellent quality photograph of St Bartholomew’s National School, was taken in the early 1900s, and our estimate from looking at the names, and comparing them to the 1911 census return, dates it at about 1908 or 1909. On the left is the headmaster, Charles Adams, who was known as Gaffer Adams. He was head from 1889 to 1921.

It is frustrating that the board being held at the front does not include an exact date!

The museum team are indebted to Mike Speight from Quorn, who spoke to Lily Callaghan, before she passed away. Lily was caretaker at the old primary school and had a copy of this photograph, which Mike published in his book, called 'Quorn Now and Then'. Lily provided a slip of paper with the following names:

Left to Right:
Back row: Mr Adams (headmaster), O Briers, N Mee, E Stockwell, A Dockray, S Greasley, L Teagle, S White, H Clark
Second row: F Clark, E Turlington, L Gartshore, E Heaps, E Corah, V Grain, A Taylor, M Sutton, N Beardmore, N Pell, F Draper, Miss E Adams (teacher)
Third row: E Sutton, E Hollingsworth, M Harris, G Bagley, A Hutton, L Adcock, L Turlington, A Fletcher, B Brewin
Front row: A Pick, M Sutton, L Boyer, L Vesty, L Howlett, D Bently, E Norton
