Bellevue School  -  Boys

Around 1930

Thank you to Neil Johnston for sending me the photograph of a boys' class at Bellevue School, taken some time around 1930.

The teacher is very smartly dressed.  Some of the boys have their jackets buttoned up high and others are wearing them more casually.  One appears to be wearing a football scarf!

"M dad, Alexander Johnston is 2nd from the right, second row from the back."

Neil also sent me photos of Leith Walk school, and added:

"It looks like the photographer even  brought his own carpet - different schools, same carpet."

The Teacher

"The teacher in this photo, dressed in the three piece suit and standing on the left hand side is my grandfather, George Carrie. 

I'm not sure when he started working at Bellevue School but he was there for many years.  I remember my mother having a newspaper article about him and his role at the school being responsible for the children and their evacuation during the war.  The article refers to him as being the 'Head'  I donít think this was the case, although he may have held this post as a temporary measure during that time.

He taught at the school until his retirement in 1950.  He died in 1968."
