The Basin Primary School Class Photographs

The Basin Primary School class photographs on the Internet is associated with the Knox Historical Society School Photograph Project.

The Society has undertaken to catalog all school photographs within the City of Knox and some adjoining schools that service the City of Knox. Photographs are collected, cataloged, archived and shown at school reunions and major festivals.

The Society requires assistance from the public by providing photographs and naming/verifying pupils in early photographs.

With respect to The Basin Primary School Class Photographs on this site:

  • All images are B/W and the files compressed to reduce size.

  • The images are smaller and lower resolution copies of the originals for pupil privacy and to protect the interests of the Society. Full size originals can be viewed at the Society headquarters and a copy provided at nominal cost.

  • Some photographs have been cropped when scanned to remove extraneous background.

  • Not all names are provided and there is no guarantee that any names provided are correct.

  • If you can provide any new photographs or assist with naming/verifying pupils in the photographs, please contact me and I will pass the information on to the Society

  • A CD is in preparation containing original size images of all The Basin Primary School Class photographs.

  • Many thanks to Jim and Barbara Stephens who collected and named all the original photographs.

When functional, the top level search facility on this site can be used to search for pupil names.

A selection of school class photographs can also be viewed at www.schoolfriends.com.au/. However, the selection is limited and there are currently no names attached to photographs.
