The Old Schoolroom Window
This drawing first appeared in The Almondburian of Easter, 1951, captioned 'The Old Schoolroom Window (1609). At that time, the School was incorrectly thought to have received its Royal Charter in 1609 (the rediscovery of the Charter followed a year later) but it is almost certainly wrong to ascribe the date of the window to 1608. According to the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner, 'the mullioned windows date back as far as the late 17th century.'
