Pictures from schooldays. In Albums and folders, in scrapbooks and shoe boxes, in the attic and in the back of desk draws are the black and white photos taken during the time at Minchenden. They bring back memories of youth and as such are better than a tonic. Old school photos fortify the over forties, Old school photos make you feel young again.

Here is a collection of photos from various people with as much electronic enhancement as we can find. Some are a bit fuzzy and some are either too dark or too light, but all bring back memories. Some happy, some not so happy; some joyfull and some sad.
