Sibu Tales : Yuk Ing Girls' School

This is a very interesting photo. Probably a graduation photo. There were 8 girls and  5 boys. Could it have been another kind of graduation photo? Yuk Ing only had girls in the school during Mrs. Hoover's time. So this could be the beginning of the foundation of the Methodist School in Sibu..

And I am also wondering if it was a photo of Mrs. Summers who came to take the place of Mrs. Hoover, who needed to go and have a rest after Mr. Hoover passed away in 1935. My Good Poh was already teaching in the school.

Could this be 1947 or 1948? Or earlier?
