Mouse over image to zoom Have one to sell? Sell it yourself Details about Vintage Edwardian Roedea


A vintage black-and-white photograph, taken around 1905, and showing two schoolgirls demonstrating some fencing exercises.
The picture is captioned:
PHYSICAL EXERCISES IN GIRLS' SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
-(1) FENCING AT ROEDEAN SCHOOL, BRIGHTON.
 
This photograph is part of a series of activity sheets, demonstrating 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
4.5" x 3.75" (12 cm x 9.5 cm).
.
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 album 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.
