This picture of the 'new dormitory' shows iron bedsteads draped in light counterpanes. They clearly did not have to make their beds with 'hospital corners' as we had to in later years! The girls also had a degree of privacy not afforded to later students. Each bed had its own curtain rail. The floorboards are covered (just along the walkways) with carpet. Wash bowls can be seen on each chest of drawers. There are photographs on the mantelpiece. It isn't obvious how the dormitory was lit at night. Perhaps the girls had nightlights. The room at the end of the dormitory may have been occupied by a senior girl or a teacher.
