Bordesley Green School, 1922. All the children are looking directly and intently at the photographer. They've obviously been told to sit up straight and several have their hands behind their backs. Others seem to have chosen to ignore this!! Viv.

An interesting addition to the thread, Vivienne, thank you. But the date seems to carry the year 1914, a year in which November 21st was a Saturday! Bordesley Green Grammar Technical School was opened in September 1937 as Bordesley Green Junior Technical School.
I can only assume that your interesting photograph refers to Bordesley Green Junior and Infants' School.

Edit. This and the previous post moved to this thread.
