~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This listing is for a circa 1950-1960 illustration of a School Badge. These illustrations are undated, but seem to have been printed on paper older than the image would suggest. The grain of the pictures suggest a type of sugar paper, which I have used to help me date these as having come from a schoolboy's or schoolgirl's annual in the 1950's. The photo/scan has a watermark, the originals will not show this watermark It is entitled simply:

ROCK FERRY HIGH (BIRKENHEAD) It shows: The school badge and motto : Remis Velisque (with oars and sails; with all one's might. - seems a mite long in translation - with my rusty latin I would say 'with oars and sails to strive' remis are oars, velum is a sail, but velisque is part of the verb volo, to want to, to will, to wish. I digress....) Rock Ferry opened in the 1920s and was a boy's grammar school originally until it became a boys comprehensive school, girls started to join in 1980. Rock Ferry High is now merged with Park High to create the University Academy of Birkenhead

The print measures 255 x 180 mm (10 x 7" ) approximately ( they vary slightly in size). It is blank on the reverse, and is suitable for framing. There is a little age yellowing - please check the larger picture for condition. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope, and protected inside that envelope by a plastic sleeve. Our use of the term "an original print" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated and not the original artwork . This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including wood and steel engravings, etchings, woodcut etc. Many prints inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time, as was this one.
