XMAS Challenge 2: Schoolchildren at Watford? circa 1910

Xmas 2014 Challenge

A typical class  from an unknown school by a Watford photographer School from circa 1910. Many of these children will have had a copy of this photograph to take home - and some may have survived - and may even have the names of some of the children on the back. Maybe other classes were photographed in the same position, perhaps in different years. So do you know of Watford area school pictures from this period with similar railings?

Donate here
I will donate £10 if anyone can name the school, and £5 for every child named. A bonus donation will be made for other relevant information - including other photographs taken by J. Russell.

See the Challenge Rules - And of course if you want to make a donation yourself - because you like the challenge, or have found this site useful over the year just click on the donation box.
