Farnborough Gallery - School days



The history of Farnborough is not just based around buildings and locations, but also the people and events that have taken place. One thing common to us all is our time at school, and this is very much part of Farnborough's social history. The images in this gallery remind us of some of the events that Farnborough has played host to over the years.

Whatever the year, whether its 1900 or 2000, if you have photos or memories of events that have taken place in the town why not send them to us so everyone can remember them.

How to use the gallery: Scroll with the arrows on the right and then click on a thumbnail of interest to view the full-size image and read the accompanying description.
