editorial image

Thanks to Gill Keen for this photograph, taken in 1989. It shows celebrations at the AGM of the Rugby High School Old Girls’ Association, which was celebrating its 70th anniversary. Those pictured, named with their maiden names, are Angela Gibson, Judith Matthews, Rosemary Underwood, Pauline Herbert, Gillian Lines, Sue Gipps, Ann Collins, Karen Horrockes, Denise Browning and Gill Hitchcock. Many of those old girls will be attending this year’s AGM on May 18.

Thanks also to those who have been in touch about recent pictures. Historian Peter Smith tells us that the photograph of Regent Street published in our March 28 edition was taken in 1905,about two years after the street was built. It was initially named Church Street.
