LIKELY LADS

This 1926-27 photograph of a class at Christchurch School, Vaughan Street, came from Peter Trehearn of Savoy Enterprises, 7-13 West Parade (the block which includes Vern’s Amusements).

The picture was given by Mr Trevor Hinder who is in the back row, second from left, to Peter’s father the late Vernon Trehearn (Vern!) who is in the front row, second from right.

In the back row, second from right, is the late J. H. (Jack) Griffiths who, like Vernon, became a Rhyl councillor. Jack was the author of the book ‘Parish Of Rhyl: a brief history of the parish and the parish church’ which was published in 1999.

Peter and I are not sure why there are only boys in the picture. Was there a time when Christchurch was for boys only, or were boys and girls segregated, or what?
