1908: Milton Road School - The Opening...











Details of the opening of the Milton Road Council Schools on July 20th 1908.
.
My grandmother, mother and I all attended Milton Road. Gran began at the school c. 1915 - when a weekly fee of sixpence was charged to attend.
.
Gran's cousin, Muriel Wiles, who attended the school at the same time, recalled herself and other pupils sitting in class with their arms folded behind their backs, thus encouraging an upright sitting posture - thought to be highly important in those days!
