A group photograph of 45 girls with their teacher at Falsgrave school in 1906.Mr Richard Percy emails [2006]:This photo shows my grandmother Lily Cartwright (back row 1st right). The year is correct about 1906. The only other person known is Lottie Huggins (4th row back and 3rd girl from the schoolmistress). There was a school at Falsgrave called the Old Township School which stood roughly at the bottom of the present Mount Park Road. This had been built in 1804. A Mr John Cross of Sandybed Farm (which became Lisvane School on Sandybed Lane and which was demolished in about 2000 to build a new estate) contributed 10gns towards the building of the school and a sum of £6.15s.0d was donated by Richard Sawdon to 'buy a bell for the school'. This establishment became reduntant when Falsgrave School was built in 1873. It remained a boys' and girls' school becoming a girls' only school just after the war. The boys' part is still there with the clock tower and is now a bed warehouse the girls' part which was situated up Ackworth Street was demolished about 15yrs ago to make way for Sitwell Court.My grandmother gave me this original photo many years ago. I used it in one of my books - 'Scarborough, a pictorial history'.
