Postcard

Fettes College

The Yeo Memorial Pavilion

 

Yeo Memorial Pavilion, Fettes College

Postcard by an unidentified publisher  -  Fettes College  -  The Yeo Memorial Pavilion

Fettes College

The Yeo Memorial Pavilion

The View

I don't have any information about the Yeo Memorial Pavilion, but it appears to be Fettes' Cricket Pavilion.  There is a large roller in the picture and a smaller one behind what looks like a small scoring hut.

The Sender

This postcard has not been posted, and the publisher is not named.

However, it appears to be part of a large series of cards, judging by the high number that it bears -  No 340157

The Date

Thank you to George Preston for providing the additional comments from Alexia A Lindsay:

"This photograph was certainly taken after May 1906 and before 1928.  I think it is 1906-10 as latterly it was merely referred to as

The Pavilion and not the Yeo Pavilion and the fence between the box and the roller would confirm this."

John Shapland Yeo

Thank you to Sheila M Yeo, Newton Abbot, Devon for providing me with the history behind the name of the Yeo Pavilion, and a link to this  page on the Yeo Society web site, which gives further details and an old engraving of JS Yeo.

Sheila added:   "This should help to date the photograph.  John was obviously very well thought of, like Mr Chips".

A Tribute

to

 John Shapland Yeo

"John Shapland Yeo was born in 1860 at Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. He was educated at Blundels School in Tiverton, Devon and then was awarded a scholarship to St John's College, Cambridge.

When he left Cambridge University he became a teacher at Fettes College, a very large public school in Edinburgh.

John died on the 24th November 1904 and was then living at Carrington House, Fettes College

I have a copy of 'The Fettesian' dated March 1905, sent to me by Jill Yeo of Dubbo. It speaks of the great affection all of his pupils had for John.  His pupils write of him being a hero with an understanding heart, brave, honest and kind. What better tribute could anyone have?"

Sheila M Yeo, Newton Abbot, Devon.  July 2005
