IT was tucked away surrounded by houses, a cinema and John Lee’s rag and skin factory, but Welby Street School ran for about 80 years.
It closed in 1940 when pupil numbers had fallen so low it was considered to expensive to run.
Spittlegate School moved there for a short spell to avoid the bombing, although they stayed for less than a year.
It never reopened and was used for storage.
In 1930, it had a major overall, with central heating and electric lighting introduced. It raised the money mainly from whist drives.
The photographs now look quaint, with girls in pinafores and boys in short trousers and boots.
They also confirm the area was not a wealthy one.
Built in 1858 the foundation stone is incorporated in the Isaac Newton Centre it was demolished in 1983 as Welby Street and Stanton Street fell to the developers.
It wasn’t until then the school became visible to the public.
This pictures, sent in by Malcolm G. Knapp, were taken in the playground in about 1931.
