I think later than 1929 as the form master is Tom Halliwell Walker who joined the staff only in 1931

Strangely enough, Mum and I were looking at my dad's (David John Smith, bottom left seated as you look at the photo, looking fed up)copy of this photo the other day. Dad was born in August 1919 so the photo dates from the early to mid 1930s. Mum tells me that the form master T K Walker had a brother, Frank, who became a lecturer in Geography at Bristol University.
