The Old Almondburians
Aerial view of school in the late 1950s
This aerial view of the school by Airviews (Manchester) Ltd shows the school in the 1950s, with the gymnasium/assembly hall clearly identifiable on the left and the physics and chemistry laboratories in the centre. A group of pupils has been marshalled to spell out the initials AGS ('Almondbury Grammar School') on the tennis courts; one of these was Gerald Stead, as he recalls as in his reminiscences in the Audio Archive.
