Treharris Schools

Treharris Central School 1914

I was fortunate enough to acquire the following photographs of the Treharris Girls School in Perrott Street…they are taken during 1914. I have added two photographs from 2009 to show how the building looks Today. There is a nursery school there now for the very young children of the Town and part of the school buildings have been converted to a Community centre.

I am not sure who had these original photographs but I am grateful to my great uncle Jack Corkrey, now aged 88, for these copies. I have no idea who the children are or any of their names but no doubt someone will have had family, great grand parents or grandparents who attended the school.

To the right is the Quakers Yard Taff Bridge (1891) On some of the pictures you will see three men in a field that is now the site of the Woodlands School which was later opened in 1905. The staff and pupils were observing the whirlpools at Quakers Yard.
