Trinity House boys

Taken in the old Paragon Bus Station, one of my first photographs, it’s just an experiment really, testing out a long lens, but Clee liked it. So he printed it up for me.
This was my first realisation that these little strips of negatives once magnified on to paper could give you interesting compositions and tell intriguing stories. But the biggest surprise of all was the power of black and white photography to transform the world of the everyday.

I’ve since been told these boys art not from Trinity House but from a rival nautical school. Does anyone know any different? Please post comments.

  1. The boy on the right certainly looks like a Trinity boy, I too wore the uniform. The boy on the left could be a first year trinity boy (they wear a different uniform and no cap) but the suit looks too dark, it should be pale grey with light blue shirt.
