Liverpool painting No. 83. Anfield Road.

Originally known as Walton-on-the-Hill Board School - up until the first part of the 20th century.
This school is famous for its Bell Tower - inevitably believed to be haunted. Originally listed as a single school, it is currently separate infant and junior schools located within the same building. Bessie Braddock is one of the school’s most famous pupils. The school was evacuated to the Ysgol Llangynfelyn ('Taliesin School') during the second world war, most of the children living in the main villages of Tre-Taliesin and Tre'r-ddôl. There were also Anfield Road children at Ysgol Tal-y-bont, a little over a mile further south on the Aberystwyth-Machynlleth road.
