Edwardian boys school photo Outdoor PE lesson Honeywell Road Boys School London


A vintage black-and-white photograph, showing an everyday school class from around 1905.
It shows a PE lesson (also known as physical instruction/education/training/fitness).
The picture is captioned:
(9.) - HONEYWELL ROAD BOARD SCHOOL, S.W.
Shoulder movements.
 
I believe that this Clapham school is still in existence.
This photograph is part of a series of activity sheets, showing lessons in various British schools, in Edwardian times.
I am not sure of the history of the pictures.
They look as if they were originally in some sort of album or folder.
Perhaps they were from a teachers' manual or similar?
 
The photograph measures around 4.75" x 3" (12 cm x 7.5 cm) , which is slightly smaller than postcard size.
It is printed on a plain sheet of paper, around (the sort that was commonly used for "book plates" in Edwardian times).
This sheet is about 12.5" x 7.75" (32 cm x 20 cm) . It has been cut (rather unevenly) along one side, presumably when it was removed from its original book or folder.

 

Condition

Good condition.
The photograph is printed on a plain sheet of paper, and appears to have started life as an activity sheet or possibly an album plate, for use in schools.
There are some thumb marks on the paper, but these are well away from the actual picture.
