This photograph was taken inside what is now Arnos Court Park but was (according to the 1911 Census) the "Reformatory School for Girls, Arno's Court". Twenty women and girls are arranged in small groups in an open field, and the background consists of the buildings that comprised the reformatory and convent of the Order of the Good Shepherd.

The photograph was taken by, and the postcard published by, Marshall, Keene & Co. The front carries the title "Arno's Court, Bristol." and the back bears the reference number "13 864". See our notes for more information about this postcard publisher, and their work in Brislington.

We have other exhibits of Arnos Court.
