A new School Photo by Buchanan circa 1914

Rose Garden, Abbot's Hill
Percy Buchanan specialised in post cards of schools and many of his cards are numbered. I am therefore collecting numbered cards of Hertfordshire schools to try and build up a date line to allow his post cards to be dated more accurately. This card, of the Rose Garden, Abbots Hill Schoo;, Abbots Langley, carried the Number 29,674 and was printed in Belgium - presumably in 1914 or earlier.. This suggests that cards with a number below 30,000 are all prior to the First World War.
