The Opening of the Derby Road Council Schools

Images from the Archives recall the opening of the Schools

By Paul Evans

The memorial stone for the Schools was laid by Councillor William Colwell at a ceremony on 1 May 1906.  The formal opening of the Schools occurred on 8 April 1907, when it was opened by the Mayor of Gloucester, Samuel Aitken.  The images below are taken from a brochure produced for the opening ceremony, although they include an image from the laying of the memorial stone.
