The official school photographs, as well as many other photographs, of Hillbrow School are available to view on Flickr at:
The best way to view all the photos is to click on the sets to the right of the screen. The same applies to the second Flickr account below, which has many of the the 2012 Reunion photos on it:
Further Reunion photos can be seen on Picasa by clicking on the following links:
Some cine film from 1934-35 has survived, part of which can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tadn1t2-NOs&feature=youtu.be. The quality is not very good, but it’s worth watching if you want to get a flavour of the school all those years ago. At 6 minutes in you can see my father pushing Miss de la Chaumette in wheelchair, and at 9 minutes and fifteen seconds, for around half a minute, you can see my mother beside a bus which is about to take the boys on an outing. She would then have been around 17 years old.
