Harrow County School for Boys

George Thorn sends a postcard from his new school - 1919

Gareth Rees writes that he bought this postcard in a small Sunday morning flea market in Hampstead about 15 years ago.   It was written by George Thorn, then at the start of a 40-year career at Harrow County as Music Master and eventually Deputy Head Master.  The photograph, "the new school where I'm teaching," shows the School buildings as originally built, before the clock was installed.
