An apology and a tip
I apologise to those who have submitted articles and comments that have not yet been published, but following the Laindon School reunion and the high level of interest in the school photographs I have been concentrating on getting them on site. The timing has been prompted by the provision, just prior to the reunion, by Joan Baterip (née Sarfas ) of a copy of the 1958 photograph, which proved so popular, at the reunion, that we felt it must be put on the site. We were then given access to an original copy of the 1956 photograph by Jim Quinton, that I have been able to scan and digitise and will add as soon as I can. Then we were provide with a digitised copy of the 1958 photograph by Andrea Ash (née Pinnell).
I immediately started work to get them on site, however this is quite involved as I have to split the panoramic photograph into reasonably sized sections that when displayed on the site enables the faces to be recognised. This will allow you to provide the names for met to add to the table below each picture. It can take a couple of hours to produce page that can contain up to seventy individuals.
I have also produced an enlarged copy of the 1958 photograph for use at ‘Memory Days’ and suitable events that the Archive attends and will have a version of the 1956 as soon as I have time to print it and for Patsy to put it together.
That is enough of my excuses now for the tip. If when you read an article you wish to see other article by that author just click on the name where it says ‘This page was submitted by’.
