Photo album presented to Mary E Allen by the members of her Girls’ Bible Class on August 22nd 1920. Mrs Allen was the wife of the Rev Andrew Allen, Vicar of Great Chesterford from 1917-1920. It includes photographs of a garden party held for the girl’s Bible Class in the Vicarage grounds with the Rev Allen and his wife Mary on August 19th 1920.  The boys Choir were taken on a trip to Baits Bite Lock near Milton, north of Cambridge. There are photographs of them waiting for the train and rowing on the river. These are followed by photos of the Vicarage and garden, the Church and the village. The Allens left the village in 1920, so it is likely the outings and the presentation of the photo album are a way of marking his retirement. The album has been signed by the girls in the Bible Class.
