The Opening of the Derby Road Council Schools

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.
