Another email from Glenville McLean


Attached is a shot taken in the front courtyard of Chilton, during the ’66-’67 term. I think probably spring ’67. This group has either just returned from, or is about to start, a trip in the Bedford widow-maker in the background.

In my time the building in the background was the TV/theatre room, and maybe a classroom or two.

Behind me (the photographer), would be the boiler room and back entrance to kitchen and dining hall.

The names are (guessing for some):

Hope this doesn’t max out your email server.

If I ever find the original, I may try and re-scan and correct flaws.
