015231:Ragged boy statue

  • Description

    Type : Photograph Medium : Print-black-and-white Description : A photograph of the statue of a ragged boy which stood outside the Ragged School. The Newcastle Ragged School was first at Garth Heads off City Road in Sandgate 1847. The School moved in 1848 to Gibson Street and then again in 1855 to Jubilee Road. In 1922 it made its last move to Axwell Park. The statue is shown in an early illustration outside the original school but not in the location/position shown in this 1966 photo which we cannot identify. We have been unable to locate the statue's current position or if it still exists.
