A Home Economics classroom.
Into the Home Economics corridor we go. The display cases seen here were, we believe, originally entrances to the classrooms in the same style as seen in the Geography and History corridors. Quite why that change was made is still unclear.
Unfortunately, this photograph has come out blurred. It does show the junction between the Music corridor and the Home Economics corridor.
Here is Jim Dempster, playing the piano in class M1. Jim is an accomplished pianist and flautist.
He now is a Secondary School teacher of Technical. His father, also Jim, features in our photo collection from Class 2E, 1952.
A view from the entrance door of the studio back towards the English and Modern Languages corridors. Below our feet we can see the roof windows into the girl’s gymnasium.
A view from the window of M3. This is Janetta Street at the junction with Dickens Avenue. Note the disused stairs into the old girl’s entrance.
Class “M3”. Usually used for keyboard lessons.
The studio, being packed up for the move. Apologies for the image quality but the doors were locked!
The entrance to the studio.
Into the music department. Again, boxes are being packed for the big move down the road. This area of the school was once home to the library. The old library became the “studio” (see R Jennings collection photo 08).
