Only a guess I would say the lad at the end of the second row down is Bert Davis, have you got a girls photo same year

Hiya Duggie, is this the Davis off Booths Brow Rd. Is it any relation to Barry Davis whos father was Bill? Ive got a photo of boys and girls mixed of the same year i will put it on the album and schools.

I think it's Bert Davis from Booths brow road, no relation to Bill Davis knew them both very well,my mam was at Rectory school in 1909 hope to see the other one , Tumtingle look at the photo see if you think it could be Bert,
By the way I think I sorted out the two photo's with my sister the first one was taken from the pens that was next to the church yard in Rectory rd, the other his Booths brow rd photo take from the pens across the road,(no pig street)
Jem must have had two pens
