BARRY PLUMBING CLASS. SPECIMENS OF STUDENTS' WORK. In the current issue of the Plumber and Decorator appears an interesting article and por- trait of the Barry Plumbing Class. In the course of the article it was stated :—Although by no means a large town, Barry (Glam.) has some big-' ideas in matters of elementary and technical education, and has for some considerable time been the Mecca of surrounding School Boards, &c., in search of up-to-date teachers and instructors in the various departments. Barry is also well ahead in matters appertaining to the plumbers' craft, and is said to have a larger percentage of registered men than any other town. We take more than ordinary pleasure, therefore, in giving this month an illustration of a portion of the work turned out by the students and teachers at the Barry Plumbing Class during the last session, and we think it will be admitted that the result compares very favourably with many of the specimens produced by students in some of our larger towns. Upon reference it will be noted that nearly all branches of work connected with the art and science of plumbing are represented- lead bossing, covering and burning, trap-making, pipe-bending and jointing of all descriptions, as well as one or two novelties in the form of a 4- inch trap made from a strip of lead 8^-inch wide, hollow bossed heads, vases, &c. and also the test pieces given in the local practical examination held by the City and Guilds of London Institute last year. Mr E. B. Sawyer, R.P. (silver medallist, Worship- ful Company of Plumbers hon. medallist, City and Guilds of London Institute), contributed the very excellent photograph which accompanied the article. Mr Sawyer may justly claim no small amount of credit for the success of the Barry Plumbing Class and is to be complimented upon the able manner in which he has always carried out his duties as a teacher. Any of our readers desirous of having an enlarged photograph of the illustration should write to Mr Sawyer, 91, Porthkerry-road, Barry.
