"(The daily meeting of the head master and his assistants, now held in this room)

"AT the end the Head-Master's room is seen through the open door on the right. In the centre is Keate's desk, above it the bust of Gladstone. On the left, near the curtain, the visitor is looking at Shelley's name cut in the panelling. The panelling all round the room is covered with the names of past Etonians. Speeches are recited here on the 4th of June." [on onion-skin page facing plate [on onion-skin page facing plate.]
