Poundswick - images

Images is a collection of photographs, some old, some taken on a visit to Parklands in 2001, which I hope you will find interesting. If you have any photos which you think would be of general interest to other Old Poundswickians, please send them on. I will be very happy to include them.

In the early sixties Mr. W. H. Nicholson ran a very popular after-school Photographic Society. He used to get his junior members to start by making a pinhole camera. Here's the result - taken by Wendy Peel with her camera in 1960.
The camera had no lenses - it was just a cardboard box with a pinhole in one edge and a strip of film taped inside the opposite one!
