We understand that this photo shows girls from the Girls High School in Sudbury and that the teacher is Miss Dorothy Elmer. They are visiting an exhibition in Bury Cathedral, probably shortly after it reopened following major renovations. The length of the skirts would suggest the 1960s.

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
