School Masters - 1958 to 1961
A few sneaky pictures of school masters and a more formal group dating from 1957. A pity I didn’t have my camera at the ready when The Jab (a.k.a. the Prod) was lecturing a small class of bored individuals on the perils of smoking. He went to sneeze at one point, hastily scrambled for his handkerchief and a packet of 20 Players Virginia fell out of his trouser pocket. Sniggers all round!
