Some of you will have seen this picture before. It was taken by George Albert Nichols, who was then based in Hitchin, probably in the late 1870s. I assumed that the school was somewhere near Hitchin and used it as part of the 2013 Christmas Competition to see if anyone could identify it.

This picture shows the same school, on a post card produced by the Alpha Trading Company, St Albans in about 1905 and a note on the back suggested it must be before 1906 when an extension was built.
