Treasures from the archives of Melbourne High School’s magazine, OURS (1920s)

One of the most delightful aspects of Melbourne High School library is its archival collection which includes the school magazine, OURS, dating back to the early twentieth century.

Take a look at a bygone era which had its own language and humour, old-fashioned advertising and unique school activities. These magazine issues date back to when the school was co-educational – before it split in 1927.
