Notes / History The Golden Jubilee of the Wimbledon County School for Girls was marked with a number of events, including a giant cake, plays, and other entertainments. Shown here is the presentation of flowers to former headmistress Miss Borthwick (1919-1940), and the school's two original assistant mistresses, Miss Thornhill and Miss Greenway. The school had much to celebrate that year, not least the fact that the long-awaited swimming pool, which the students had spent ten years raising funds for, was nearing completion.
