Contents The Gallery In the Dorm Scenes from 27 (1962/63)

Yet another crop of photos from the Chris Smith collection.  They were mostly taken during the 1962/63 school year in Dorm 27; then forming part of the Annexe that housed the lucky (?) souls who could not be accommodated in the main Halls.

1. Cheers! WTJ Lawrence, Paul D. Clarke, Robin Jackson, Chris Smith and David Cole in a side-room study. 2. Still life. An RGD portable radio, 4oz tin of Nescafe, pint of milk, possibly Horlicks at the back, tie from Bonds of Norwich ... and a slide-rule.
