Choir Holiday 1890


It was traditional that on the annual Choir Holiday a school-wide cricket tournament was played.  The connection between choir and cricket is due most assuredly to the fact that the longtime choirmaster, James Carter Knox (Form of 1865 and faculty member from 1868-1929) was an early and devoted player of cricket at St. Paul’s School.

A notation on the back of the photograph dates it to June 10th, 1890.  The photographer is listed as Charles A. Kerner – possibly Charles Henry Kerner, Form of 1890.  James Carter Knox, with mustache and white cap, can be seen standing on the porch of the Cricket House behind the post on the left.
