Dad's School Leaving Certificate

School Leaving Certificate

Left: The letter Dad was given six months after he left Boulton Road Council School in December 1910.

The letter, dated 26 July 1911, reads:

This is to certify that Frank Leonard Ball was a scholar in this school until last Xmas when he left to attend the Day Classes at the Handsworth Art School.
He is a boy of splendid disposition and has had a good training at home.
He is specially good in drawing including light & shade, design and painting.
I feel sure he will give every satisfaction.
H.R. Shepperd
