2.  Photo of Neath School

This photo from my family records shows the Neath School during the winter of 1895-96.  The school, no longer standing, was located next to the Neath Church Cemetery on the far side away from the Church.  (The school can be seen in the accompanying photo of the church.)  My Grandmother, Mary "May" Elizabeth Williams (Jones) [b. Neath, 1881-1950] is standing in the back row directly under the sixth window shutter from the right.  She married Hugh Jones, pastor of the Neath Church at that time, on June 20, 1900 and is buried next to him in this Church Cemetery.

I believe the girl in this picture upon whose shoulder my grandmother has placed her hand is Alice Evans [b. Neath, 1881-1975] who later received international recognition for her pioneering studies of brucellosis (undulant fever).  [See: ]  I base this on comparisons with other published photographs of Alice Evans and on the fact that Evans and my grandmother were contemporaries and friends in Neath.
