The Archivist Strikes Again

We have recently uncovered an amazing unknown Scrap Book written by an old OD, namely that of Richard Berwyn Wilmshurst who was at Derby School from 1910 to 1913. Plus Preparatory Section of Derby School 1903 to 1910.

The scrap book goes on for 40 plus pages and has 35 previously unseen B&W and sepia photographs. Indeed a great find!

After being archivist since 2009 (10 years) I believe this is the best find yet. Where was it found? In a cardboard Storage Box stored at DGS above the stage in the Michael Bishop Hall. One never knows what may be around that corner!
