Portobello Secondary School

Thank you to Dorothy Addison (née Jenkins) for sending me the photograph above of her school class, 2B2, at Portobello Secondary School, taken in in 1952.

Class 2B2

"The class photo above is of class 2B2 in 1952.  The teacher is Miss McKenzie.  She was the math teacher, and a very nice lady. 

It was an 'all girls' class.  Maybe the thought was that we would not concentrate if it was boys and girls.

My favorite thing at school was playing field hockey, and that's the truth.

I look forward to seeing other photos from my old school."

Drama Group

Dorothy also sent me a photograph of the school drama group, taken during a performance at the Gateway Theatre in 1952.  Please click on the image below to enlarge it and read about it.
