The book has been donated to Rossall’s archive by the grandaughter of Beatrice Wilson who married Jimmy McClive, a former pupil at Rossall School.

He was a keen photographer and became an analytical chemist. He died in 1940. The pictures offer a true insight into life at the boarding school, not just the studying at the desks but how the scholars spent their time.
