The main photo, believed to have been taken circa 1940, was discovered by Terence Bates.
He suspects it shows Stoke Hammond School where his mother (Winifred Knight – later Bates) used to teach.
As well as the photo, Mr Bates has inherited his mother’s pictures which were painted by the headteacher Ms Walters.
He said: “She gave these paintings to my mother but she was fairly prolific so I suspect that Stoke Hammond homes probably have many pictures by her.
“Mother had fond memories of teaching in Stoke Hammond. I have sent a picture of her at the time in case there are any villagers still living to help jog their mind, she may even have taught them.”
