In times gone by – an English Grammar School in the 1950s – by Anthony J Sargeant

Morning Assembly at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham Boys’ School 1955-62 In reading this note it is important to understand that the day to day running of the school was organised and controlled by the Prefects. The masters taught their subjects but did not have to concern themselves with mundane matters such as the wearing of correct uniform, behaviour in the school playground during breaks, supervising queues for school dinners at lunchtime, or reporting boys who arrived late after the bell had been sounded for the school to line up in the playground ready for morning assembly.

A Rainy Sunday Afternoon in London


Looking down from Waterloo Bridge onto the South-Bank. Anthony Sargeant took this photograph in the 1960s with his Canon FTb single lens reflex camera.

St Pancras Church on the Euston Road in London


Before going to Camden Registry Office a little further along the Euston Road to get married, Tony Sargeant and Eileen Andrews had a quiet moments together in this church, making vows to one another in private. The photograph was taken some 28 years later in 2013. Built 1819-22 it is a fine example of the Greek revival style of architecture.
