Hi if anyone could give me a rough date of this half picture i have I'm believing it to be of my grandfathers school picture (but there is no writing on it), he was born 1917 and lived in Govan Glasgow the school could be St Saviours or St Anthony's in Govan it is on a cardboard type paper and was in his belongings after he died in 2005 so it must be a family member the dating of it would help to narrow it down possibly thank you all in advance.

I am wondering if it is a Sunday School picture. The attire of the girls especially, with many wearing necklaces, suggests "Sunday best" wear rather than every day school wear.

My guess would be late 1920s early 1930s.

Your photo is much later...we are not allowed to post photos from the internet without the owner's permission...it's better to post a link to the online photo. I think the children look to be about 11/12ish

Could still be a school photograph. Children usually dressed up in their best outfit when photographer was scheduled to come.

Doesn't look like the same school as the brickwork is different.
I would agree post war-1920's.
