I’ve added a few new pages to my one-place study. They are:
- The General Assembly School – opened 1867, still standing. Includes a list of local people who attended meetings about building this new school.
- List of schoolmasters and teachers – more names needed. Can you help fill in the gaps?
- School photos from the 1920s and 1930s – more names needed. Were any of your relatives at the school then?
- School photos (upper primary) from the late 1940s and early 1950s. (Names are complete)
And I’ve already written a blog about the opening of the new school in 1932.
The Society for One-Place Studies’ shared endeavour this year is Employment so that has been a real spur for me to work on pulling together the information I have on this aspect of North Walls and Brims. Previous blogs have looked at changes in employment between the 1861 and 1911 censuses and the situation of women specifically.
