Bells Grammar School Swimming Gala

Bells Pool

Bells Grammar School Swimming Pool

Dave Nash added: "... this photo shows what was known as the swimming gala which took place every summer. I can recognise a couple of teachers there and would assume the other spectators to be a mixture of other teachers, parents and other guests. The non participating pupils would be assembled on the other side of the pool which is not in view. As to date I would assume it to be early to mid sixties. The three teachers in the foreground are - far left as we look: Mr.Davis wearing spectacles, at the table is Mr.Rawle and to the right is Mr.Moran".

Bernard Pendrey added (September 2010): "... I worked for J.H. Williams between 1957 and 1960 and helped in the construction of the swimming pool, especially plastering the sides".
