Malcolm Seaborne Collection - Treasures From Our Archive

This collection includes black and white photographs, notes and drawings, and a range of copied material relating to schools and school-rooms throughout Wales. The information was gathered for his book ‘Schools in Wales 1500-1900’ (published 1992), and subsequently donated to our archive.  The black and white photographs, notes and drawings are an important record of school architecture:  some of the Victorian School buildings have been demolished; others have been altered and re-used as Community Centres and Branch Libraries, or converted to domestic use.
