A very interesting well composed image capturing the wonderful old classroom filled with heaps of bygone charm.

Thanks for sharing

Wow they were lucky having a view. In my first school the windows were too high to see out of, but we did have identical desks

Very interesting. A very nice study of a schoolroom
I went to an old fashioned school (they said traditional) and our desks were not that different from these. One advantage was that our books that we didn't need could stay in the desks as in those days, different from my grandchildrens' schools, there was not another class ready to take over the classroom for their lessons. Our room was ours just the teachers changed according to the subjects being taught. No caning though, but my poor cousin, at the boys' school run by the same people, was caned quite often for misbehaving. He would come to my mother and say that he hadn't cried, but he certainly cried on my mother's shoulder. His mother believed in discipline and said he was very naughty and deserved it. Poor child.
You brought back memories Jasmine.

Memories indeed. Nicely exposed with a view through the window and the green lights looks good as well.

Love the view! I remember wooden desks, with carvings on them, and inkwells! I don't remember canings but then, we were all well-behaved then!

Super shot and very much like the school I went too. A good reminder for a lot of us here.

Wow, super image Jas, and it shows my age but my first school had completely identical desks! The seats were very uncomfortable, and where it looks like here they have put corks in, that is where the ink well went! Ah.....they don't make 'em like 60 years ago!! Kids don't know they're born these days with hi-tech classrooms Wink
Love the green lampshades!
