Description

This Kodak transparency was shot by Claude L. Bonsey on the Surry Grammar School playground during a special event. It's notable for the appearance of the weathervane on top of the flagpole. The placement of this weathervane proved contentious when resident Harry Carter objected to it, saying its location ran counter to flag etiquette.
