The Lawrence Magazine

1953 Coronation Issue returns to the School's Archives
12 Oct 2020

Among several old school publications donated to the archives by the widow of Trevor Foulkes (OB 1945-51, Head of School 1950-1) was  the Coronation Issue of The Lawrence Magazine: An Upper 2 Production!

Inside the front cover a picture of the Queen has been carefully pasted, with a stern message from the Editor "This issue should, I think, be called our Coronation issue, and I know you will all wish to join with me in loyal greetings to our Queen. I hope the selection of the material you have given me is worthy of the occasion."

Doubtless, Her Majesty (who was sent a copy) would have very much enjoyed, amongst other offerings, the account of a trip to Versailles, and the instructions on how to plant a shrub.

Who remembers this magazine - and do you still have any copies? The School Archivist would be delighted to receive any, now unwanted, examples of school work/publications over time.
