Education Week 1939
This photo is from my Education Week booklet of 1939 and shows both Varndean and Balfour Road Schools from the air. Balfour Road School is in the foreground, while Surrenden Road and Varndean School can be seen behind. The woods in the centre of the photo is where Dorothy Stringer School was constructed in the early 1950s, and the trees of Withdean Park can be seen in the far distance.
Well Done Janet and Alan
My Mystery Photo seen here showing girls folk dancing was quickly solved by Janet Beal. Then Alan Hobden added more detail to further define the exact location; which I think this new photo shows he got exactly correct. The girls are dancing in the front of Balfour Road School as seen in this “from the air” photo.
