Cockburn High School, 6th Form Class
c1912-13. View showing a class of 6th form pupils sitting at desks with books in front of them. Both boys and girls can be seen together, a very rare sight in those days. Cockburn High School was unusual for the time in being a mixed school, but even so there would normally have been a strict policy of segregation between the sexes. We are told that on this occasion apparently the boys' classroom was unavailable so they had to share with the girls, though they are all grouped together at the back. Note also the solitary book cabinet at the back and portraits hung around the walls.
