Desperately seeking picture of old Yarmouth school
- Credit: Archant
In June last year The Mercury was kind enough to allow a letter to be placed about Northgate Junior School in Runham Vauxhall. The school, which had been built in the 1880s, was brought back into use after the Northgate School in Rampart Road (pictured) was bombed during the second world war. I was hoping someone might have a photograph of the school but that was not forthcoming and my research has not discovered one as yet. It was next door to a tannery factory and the smell was awful.
I did however, manage to contact a few pupils and have put a website together and wondered if anyone out there can help us with more details of this little school. A photograph would be wonderful but in those days cameras were few and far between. Contact with any of the pupils would be much appreciated. The school closed on 25 July 1958.
I can be contacted on email at firstname.lastname@example.org
