Identification of faces: thank you to all who have provided names for faces. Sometimes we get more than one name for a face, in which case we show both until someone else settles it for us.

In preparation

(when dated) an early school photo courtesy of Ely Museum ... we hope that some of you may be able to lend or donate other EHS School Photos to enable fill in the gaps in our on-line collection, especially the photos from the 1940s

If you can provide any other EHS School Photos, or any photos of forms, sports, productions or any other activities at EHS please contact us. Were there any school photos taken in the late 1940s (SGS had ones in 1946 and 1949)?
