Thank you to George T Smith, now living in British Columbia, for sending me his memories of Craiglockhart Primary School.

There was a sculpture above our door, up whose steps we used to march to the sound of a piano playing  patriotic tunes e.g. "The King is still in London" on the top landing.

The sexes were carefully segregated by a fence between playgrounds which  were made of unforgiving concrete which provided excellent slides for  boys wearing tackety boots.

Thank you to George for also sending his memories of the Janitor's House and Playgrounds.
