The best days?


At the great west door of York Minster, a primary class not quite ready for the learned discourse about to be delivered. The teacher, however, knows his craft and doesn't keep them long. These are pupils from The Minster School, located a few hundred yards away on the other side of the cathedral. I have mixed feelings about school uniform, but they do look smart here, don't they? In cooler weather they wear red blazers.

  3. Er... How come it's 2:30 AM in York when it's 11:30 AM in Paris?

  4. Vous avez raison! I like school uniforms, too! I was an English teacher in Japan for 2 years and all the students wore uniforms. Great photo!

  5. If I had been one of the girls I would have been very pleased with the PINK color!! :) We don`t have school uniforms here, and I don`t think it has been on the agenda.
