I have just discovered another set of negatives that were given to me, some years ago, by Peter Hodder. Peter was one of the original entrants to BHCHS and he went on to become a professional photographer. He was responsible for many of the team and class photos we now have in the archives. He gave me a collection of negatives, including some excellent photos taken at the Coronation Fete in 1953, and many of which have been published in OB News.
The negatives I have just found, but not previously scanned, contained some mysteries. Some pupils, mainly from senior years, have been photographed seated in groups of four. There are about 15 of these group photos, and I have posted some examples on the Photo Miscellany page HERE. I estimate that the photos were taken in either 1952 or 1953. I look forward to hearing if you can shed any light on the mystery.
