On the way to PE lesson (1961)

A closer view of the changing rooms by the old gym. The girls' room was on the left and the boys' on the right. This must have been during the summer term as some of the girls are wearing the lighter summer dresses and not the grey skirts. Also the chap running is carrying a tennis racket. At least one of the girls is also carrying a tennis racket.

Note also that the girl on the left is demonstrating the usual method of carrying the stack of books that would be needed for the scheduled lessons for the day and the PE kit is carried in suitable duffle bags. If sports kit was left in these duffle bags for too long the odour could get quite overpowering!
