About this memory
Every pupil had their own separate desk.
Occasionally there would be double desks where two pupils shared.
Made of wood and cast-iron, all desks faced the front of the class where the teacher sat behind a large desk.
The decks were fitted with a lid to store books etc.
There was a hole in the top where a ceramic inkwell was placed for Writing lessons.
