Recently, amongst various smaller items, we noticed a framed school photograph dated 1936, showing all the pupils and staff of the Central Girls’ High School in Newcastle upon Tyne

Chairman Alan Oswald, who was brought up in Newcastle, was quick to deny that he had any detailed knowledge of this girls’ school, but was keen to ensure that the school itself had the opportunity have the photo

After many e-mails back and forth, the school realised that it did not have a copy of this photo, and were pleased to accept it as a gift from Cambridge Re-Use

As their Librarian said We are delighted – this is an important addition to our archive
