From the days when Boys and Girls were educated separately. 36 boys of the Hall of Ince Schools, taken in about 1900. It is interesting to note how well turned out most of these lads are, given that most of their parents will have been miners or railway workers. This group would have been the right age for many of them to have been in uniform during the Great War....
