  Withington Lane School, same school as Dtease posted previously, this picture is probably 100 years earlier. The school closed 1896 with half the pupils being transferred to St Johns whilst the other half transferred to St Elizabeth's Aspull.

That's interesting Walt. Apart from the addition of an extension on the left and some rendering, it doesn't seem to have changed much.
Cracking picture Walt.

Dtease, another piece of information I have found relating to the closer of this school. It appears all pupils were taught to a very good standard also, attendance was 100% for most pupils and that they all walked to school regardless of the weather often having to dry their clothes out on the radiators before they could wear them for the walk home. ( just like today's kids then)
