In the early days of Bretton Hall as a Teachers' Training College, one of the annual rituals was that of the formal, whole-group photograph of students and academic staff. It's not clear when this ceremonial occasion came to an end, but, as numbers increased, the group photographs became too cumbersome.
The first of the Bretton annual photographs was taken in summer of 1950 and shows the first batch of students who joined the College in September, 1949.
