  1. Montgomery College

    eBay details :

    Hard to place the exact dates of these pictures but we believe they would be 1870-1910 era based on the clothing. One picture shows the boys in their cricket gear and bats! Both pictures are by E Oswald Parkin of The Grosvenor Studio in Sheffield. The more formal picture of the boys in their suits has a sign on the side of the buidling that reads Montgomery College and another stone below it that indicates the cornerstone was laid by the Mayor Thomas Moore in 1869. I can't locate information on Montgomery College in Sheffield but I did locate a Thomas Moore who was Mayor of Sheffield England at that time. These are large pictures, with the paper matte frame they measure approx 18" x 14" each.
