The Old Almondburians
King James presents a Charter . . .
This drawing by 'BS' appeared for many years on the title page of The Almondburian. The artist was Bradley Shaw, part-time art master at the School from 1903 to 1920. A well known 'character' in Huddersfield, he had a studio in the Burlington Arcade. In those days, the granting of the Charter was wrongly believed to have taken place in 1609: it was only in 1952, with the re-discovery of the Charter in Leeds, that the true date was discovered to be 24th November 1608.
