Brush Type 4 Class 47 No. D1579 (47459) at Darlington Bank Top Station 1965 - Low Resolution Image

A pensive looking trainspotter schoolboy wearing his school uniform, poses as his photo is taken by the cab of a diesel loco at Darlington Bank Top Station on Easter Sunday 18th April 1965. He wears a peaked school cap, shirt, tie, pullover, blazer (with a notebook in the pocket) and short trousers.

The loco, Brush Type 4 Class 47 No. D1579, was later to be renumbered as Class 47/4 47459, built at Crewe works in May 1964, withdrawn 25th March 1992 and scrapped at Booth-Roe Metals, Rotherham 7th May 1993.

Although being slowly phased out, shorts and caps were items of school uniform common at this time.

No wonder he looked sad: judging by previous pictures he had been allowed to wear long trousers "off duty" for a year or two, so he probably found shorts quite demeaning. I did, when I changed schools at 13 having been in long trousers for two years..
