Carrying on the Tradition
As local Eton photographers we are carrying on a 250 year old Eton College tradition by taking Eton boys leaver portraits.
First recorded in the seventeenth century, by which the headmaster presented books ‘to all young gentlemen who took their leave of him handsomely’. Handsomely seems to have implied the present of some £10 or £15 (noblemen paid double) slipped unostentatiously on to the headmaster’s desk when taking final leave.
It was to a headmaster, Dr. Barnard, who reigned from 1754 to 1765, that the idea occurred of asking for a portrait instead of a leaving fee from his more distinguished pupils.
