Outside Dr Bell's School

"A friend told me about this site and lo and behold, here is a photo of my Primary 7 class at Bonnington Primary (1968).

Just to clarify - this photograph was taken outside Dr Bell's school in Great Junction Street, Leith, which housed P6 & P7 pupils of Bonnington.

Also, the class teacher was MRS Skene.

Those were the days!  I've  often wondered what became of my class mates.

Thank you to James Brown for sending this photo to the site."
