Another reader, Ronald Murray, from Alnwick, sent in this photo, which was also inspired by last week’s picture of the sale poster for the Old Ragged School.

It features the headstone of George S Bain, who, according to the inscription, was master of the Alnwick Ragged School for 11 years.

He died on September 21, 1898, aged 72.
