Alwoodley Council School, fire
27th February 1941. View shows the burnt out remains of Alwoodley Council School's temporary building at the corner of King Lane and Nursery Lane after it was engulfed by fire. Two girls are rifling through the remains of the headmistress's study for anything that may have survived but very little remained of the contents. Fortunately no-one was hurt as most of the children had gone home for lunch at the time.
