Re: Barnes House Photos
I just about remember certain food and sweet rationing still in force in the early 50's, before my CH days.

Keith was able to point out several people including himself to us (giggles all round) in the 1961 photo but then we noticed his named is spelled wrong below the picture.... PLEASE could someone edit it to BATTARBEE?

Hi Michael.michael scuffil wrote:What is the silver trophy? Does it have something to do with music? If so, Barnes B was clearly an arty house at this time. The other trophy is the Coleridge Trophy, awarded for academic excellence. No great crowd of sporting awards, certainly.
I rather suspect that a number of different photos have been confused/conflated. Certainly the last three or four to be posted are on the Barnes A lawn.jhopgood wrote:I am confused.
Surely it is a photo of Barnes A, if so, why have they got a Barnes B cup?
Also, why is a junior house involved in shooting?
