1959 Letters home from FSC Preston Montford

FSC has received several old postcards that were written by students staying at Preston Montford which give a wonderful insight into FSC of the late 1950s.

'Today we have studied the freshwater animals of a pond and of a stream.  It was quite fun, fishing with kitchen sieves! We are working terribly hard - we thought we'd have a rest from school, but this is far harder.'

 'There are people here form as far away as Bristol, Bathy, Great Yarmouth and Taunton.  We have the Warden in charge of our course so he should know his stuff!'
