Sheepscar Council School, May Day Celebrations
May, 1953. In this image, May Day celebrations are taking place at Sheepscar Council School. The May Queen is seated on a dais, beneath a decorated parasol, surrounded by her attendants. The girls are wearing white dresses, ankle socks and white shoes and have wreaths of flowers in their hair. The boys are smartly dressed, two in waistcoats and one bearing a cushion for the May Queen's crown. In the background the exterior walls of the school and ornate windows are visible. Sheepscar Council School, now demolished, was located on Wilmington Grove at the junction with Barrack Street, off Meanwood Road.
