At Market Lavington School in 1921

Not even Mrs Elisha was teaching at the school in 1921. But Miss Potter was and she became Mrs Elisha when she married Bill on 27th June 1929. Let’s take a peek at the picture.

Miss Eleanor May Potter (always known as May) is at the back right and we can name a few others in the photo. Sadly, what name applies to which youngster is not clear.

The back row has W Cooper, a young Miss Bullock, D Cooper, E Gye. There is said to be an unknown person next to Miss Potter.

The next row forward has R Mundy at the left and a young Miss Still at the right with three unknowns in between.

The next row has an unknown, L Potter, V Tucker an unknown and a young Miss Shephard.

Seated at the front there are two unknowns then B Jordan and B Gye.

Now that lists 20 people. There are 19 people in the photo. Just possibly someone out there can help us.

It is thought that Miss Potter may have been taking the class on a picnic.  The location is not known, but presumably it is well within walking distance of the school – now The Old School.
