1810 NL42 p7 LGS photos

 

 

UPDATE, 7th March 2019

The photos have now been catalogued, indexed and the originals passed on to the Suffolk Record Office who will preserve them for posterity.

     

The completed work formed a popular feature at our recent Open Day. 

The digitised photos are available to view at our Help Centre and will be taken to the Leiston Grammar School Reunion on 22nd June 2019.  We are happy to provide copies to any interested alumni or members of their families.  Please contact committee member John Martin for full details — see our Contact Us page.

However there are several photos missing from the collection and we would be pleased to hear from anyone who can provide any of the following pictures —

Football Pre 1930; 1931-34; 1937-45; 1948; 1950; 1954; 1965 and 1968 onwards
