IMG_20151116_152320This is a map of the old area of Paganel Primary School in 1885. It has been laminated and it has been painted to show the current map of Paganel over it. I chose it because, at first I thought why was there paint all over it.  It was an old map from 1885-6 . Then I realised that it’s two maps in one.  The current area is painted on the old map!

Soutir chose a Map of Paganel for his favourite archive – part of a series of laminated A3 sheets – ‘History of Paganel’.  The display from 1990s Paganel School is being digitised – many of the photos and images used in the display are original.
