Quorn St Bartholomew’s Primary School, about 1894

This item appeared in the Loughborough Echo 50 years after the photograph was taken. Unfortunately, as it was a cutting – and split into two pieces – the exact date was not known.

In the article it says that the picture was loaned by Mrs Nellie Green, 58 Station Road, Quorn. Station Road was renumbered in the 1960s and the Greens lived at what is now 70 Station Road. Nellie was born Ellen Martin in Quorn in 1889 and is second from the right on the bottom row. This means that the photograph was taken in about 1894, so the newspaper must have been published in about 1944.
