Millwall Central School, Netball Team 1925 or 1926. Back row: Eva - , - ,Phoebe Pilton, - Davidson. Front row: Marjorie Bartlett, Eva Crawford and Marie Easter.All the schools in London competed at netball. Milwall Central played the final against Fulham and lost. The gym mistress treated them all to ice cream afterwards. There wasn't a uniform as such; it was acceptable to wear a gym slip and blouse. Pupils were very proud of their school. The two grammar schools were George Green and Hawrah House, in East India Dock Road and you had to be ‘exceptionally good' to get in there. Donated by Mrs M. Bayer
