These three pages of an article published in Picture Post on 19 January 1946 were found by Paul Martin on ebay. They  are a fascinating take on a miner starting his studies at Ruskin College. The images include the library in the college’s former building in Walton Street – with an  image of Amne Vrooman on the wall.

If anyone has any information on what happened to Ernest Fisher we would love to know.
