Friday photo: Time for exercise

Another couple of images from the WJ Gibson collection, this time showing a gym class in the Nicolson in 1911.

Gym class at the Nicolson Institute, 1911

Girls’ gymnastics class; physical exercises. Teacher and WJ Gibson standing at side.

As well as a cameo of Gibson himself, I like the detail in the bacg ground.  Fencing masks appear to feature, an interesting looking rope hanging from the roof, a mobile flag pole (possibly) and I’m not sure what the arch large structure is – any ideas?!
