Help wanted with Primary Staff photo of 1952.
This photo appeared in the School Magazine in December 1952. This was just a few years after I left Primary in June 1949 to go to Secondary in August 1949, but I can recognise very few of the teachers. Can you help? The quality of the photo is not very good since the original was published as a “screened” print”. I asked the School if they had any original prints of staff during our time at the Primary School but they have nothing.
I think the following key may be correct.
3 Miss Chalmers, 5 Miss Ingram (why did she always wear a collar and tie?) 6 Miss McNab, 9 Miss Brooksby (infants), 12 Miss Hornshaw, 13 Mr Davidson? (Second Master) 14 Miss McLeod, 16 Miss E Hamilton, 15 Mrs Riley, 17 Jessie Stevenson (I had her for 2 years) 18 Miss Ironsides? (“Tin-ribs”) 19 Miss MacIntyre 20 Miss Inglis 21 Miss Mitchell 22 James Stewart, headmaster (I got six of the belt from him after I accidentally bumped into him on the busy stairs between classes), 23 Miss MacPherson (friend of Miss Ingram) 24 Miss Bryden 25 Miss McNeilly, 26 Miss A Mackenzie.
From the “Here and There” section of the School Magazines between 1949 and 1952 there are some notes on staff movements:
Miss Agnes Hamilton and Miss Walton left in 1950
Hugh K Frew (I had him for 2 years including my “Qualifying” year) and Mr Marshall left during 1951
Happy reminiscing, and I hope you can identify even a few. ( I have had 2 identifications in recent months)
