I noticed the brilliant reflection of the lights on the bald head of Mr. Spragg, the principle of the school. Great Photo!!
Man, I love that! You had the camera, and you had the eye even back then. I have a few images of highlights on bald heads, hahaha!

Perhaps my first camera was a 110 cassette Kodak Brownie, or it could have been a Keystone XR33. I didn't use either one very much. The only photos I have from either of those cameras was only developed in the last five years, after I found the Keystone buried in a box of stuff. It held images from when I was not even a teenager, photos of my best friend at the time, and our old house. But it obviously wasn't used since the early 80s.
