Playtime, Chapel Allerton Council School, postcard
c1905. Postcard with a postmark of 22nd April 1905 showing playtime at Chapel Allerton Council School. Built as Chapeltown Board School in 1879, it was designed by Leeds School Board architect Richard Adams. The school continues in use today (2011) and is now known as Chapel Allerton Primary School. Children are playing here in the large playground at the front of the school, many of them gathered in a circle for activities with three members of staff. The school is situated on Harrogate Road.

Some of the children, along with three adults (teachers?) appear to be playing some sort of 'ring-game'. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it might be.





Looks like "The Farmers in his Den" to me - I've seen a ring as big as that play it in that playground in the 50s
