further, "This is the cover of the 1946
magazine. The front, inside front and back covers
remained unchanged throughout the ten-year period
except that on the front cover the price
increased from sixpence to one shilling in 1946.
The inside front
cover was always blank and the outside back cover
always had the same advertisement for 'Hornes'.
Initially, the inside back cover was also blank
but, from 1948 onwards, advertisements from
'Johnsons' and 'Jack Sharp' were carried there.
this file contains the picture of the winning
football team from the 1946 magazine which was
tipped into the issue. This file was scanned in
colour whereas the magazines are all scanned in
black and white without covers.
the 'Prescotians' are the property of my school
contemporary, Terry Threlfall, and I am grateful
to him for lending them to me to scan. The 1953
scan is from a Xerox copy and is unclear in a few
places. This was obtained from the School Archive
[part of the National Archives] which is held in
Kirkby Library. We are grateful to Mrs Eileen
Hume, the Knowsley archivist [since resigned] who
arranged to get this copy".
