1950's Classroom - primary school. There were pots of ink in those inkwells and we used horrible pens which were a piece of wood with a nib attached. I could never get the hang of writing with them. I was thrilled when I could use a fountain pen years later.
this was what my school desk looked like, but the classroom was more old fashioned than this one - these desks seated two kids - there were 40 girls in my class so there were four rows of five desks - date 1953 to 1957
