Guiseley National School 1891

National School
Date c1891
Location Guiseley
Photo ID
Photo of a mixed class 5 with a male and a female teacher.

I have an original copy of this photo as my grandfather John Riley (known as Jack) is on there. His younger sister Alice is also in the photo but I do not know which one she is. My mother said Alice was wearing a white pinafore but she did not know which was her. John and Alice Riley were two of the children of Edwin Riley, the rope maker who had a rope walk behind Guiseley Town Hall. I sent a copy of this photo to Martin Rigg and he included it in one of his excellent books.
