The teaching staff of Beverley Grammar School gather for a group photograph in 1910. Unfortunately, some of the schoolmistresses at the back have had their attention drawn elsewhere and are looking away from the camera. At a time when a woman’s ‘place’ was still very much in the home, the teaching profession gave women an outlet in which they could forge successful and influential careers, as evidenced by the presence of no less than 12 female staff in this picture!
