The photo was provided at the 2011 Annual Dinner. It was found when rooms in Soham Village College were being cleared. It has since been carefully removed from the tattered brown card 'frame' to which it had been stuck (see the report of the 2011 Dinner).

We already have the 1929 photo. The photo below includes Mr CJ Ford and Mr C Crouch, who both arrived in 1926. Mr Riley, who arrived in 1929 and is in the 1929 photo, is not shown below. The Head is Mr JC Platt (1916-1930).

Ann Munn's father Cyril Frank Hepher is #489 in the 1925-26 Admission Register. He is in 4/9 row 1: 1. These photos were usually taken in the Spring, so this could be as early as 1926.

If you can help us to date this photo please let us know.
