BGS School Photo - 1960

Old Bordenian Richard Evans has provided a good deal of material related to the school from the mid-fifties to early sixties. I shall be adding this material to the website over the coming weeks.  As a starter, here is the 1960 school photo.  I will keep the photo as 4 separate images.
