Essendon North State School Photos, 1923-1926

Four class photos of Prep classes from Essendon North, from 1923 to 1926 have been kindly shared  by Ian Reiher.  If you can recognise any of your relatives in these photos, please get  in touch.  Go to the Time Travellers website to see all photos. 


  1. An inexperienced photographer who should have asked those little boys in the front row to sit on their bottoms so they wouldn't wobble, making their faces all fuzzy! Not to mention that it would make them look like they weren't just thrown together.

  2. William Edmends did an enormous amount of school photos in the district. You can see he has told the boys to kneel on one knee and have the other knee up - it might have been the first and last time he tried that. In the following years, which he also took, the boys are sitting neatly on a stool or the ground with legs crossed.
