b'160 NOT OUT!Welcome to the 160thanniversary edition of The Bridge!There are many milestone anniversaries this year: the BBC celebrates its centenary; the Queen is now Britains longest serving monarch; and, my own personal favourite, the iconic Birmingham landmark Spaghetti Junction is 50. HGS has a history stretching back even further, opening its doors for the first time in the summer of 1862.The Bridge magazine isnt quite as old as the school itself. It first rolled off a turn-of-the-century press back in 1904 and, although Im sure its contents wouldnt have been quite as varied as the contents of this edition, I know that it included a list of all the names and addresses of the Bridge Trust Old Boys. A riveting read I am sure! Hopefully you will find this years Bridge a little more entertaining. Enjoy!Ms Brown3'
