"I'm sure that the teacher in this photo is Mrs Main, my teacher in Primary 6 and 7 circa 1953.  It's nice to see these photos.  Isn’t the internet wonderful?

My mother, Mrs Polly Hardy, taught at Carrickvale Junior Secondary school at Stenhouse for many years.

My father, Dr David Hardy, was the school dentist for Murrayburn during that period!"
