If you take a look at the previous posts Old Boys 1914–1924 Parts 1 2 3 4 5 6 and 7 you’ll discover fantastic original photos and details of some of Moor Allerton’s very earliest pupils, dating back almost a hundred years. Unfortunately, some of the pictures had become detached from the original album, so we can’t put names to faces or provide any more details for the following, but we thought we’d post the photos anyway …

We’ve published snippets from this album previously, but here’s a flip-book version of the whole thing. The album covers the years 1936–1954 and offers a glimpse at the rich variety of life and activities during this period.

We’ll hopefully be focusing on individual pictures and events in more detailed posts in the future.

Some more pages from the photo album showing some of the staff and pupils from the late 1930s.

One of the star finds we’ve made in going through the Moor Allerton archive is this photograph album which charts every day life at the school between 1936 and 1955. It gives a fascinating insight into what went on at the school. As these first few pages from the start of the album show, some of them are familiar and still go on today – swimming trips and sports matches (how about a Dads [and Mums] v Lads [and Lasses] centenary cricket match, Mr Millard?!); but some of them seem very strange, such as the boxing competitions, mentioned in previous posts!

Look out for more pages from the album appearing here very soon.
