Broughton Higher School

"I thought  that visitors to EdinPhoto may be interested to see this photograph that I bought.  I was amazed at the near perfect condition it was in. It looked like it was taken yesterday not over a hundred years ago.

It is also, in my experience, unusual to find a photograph with its cover intact, without which I probably wouldn't have known it was taken at Broughton Higher School, Edinburgh as the students aren't wearing any kind of uniform, school tie or badge."

My Family

"Three generations of my family have attended Broughton Primary School which is next to the original Broughton High School building.  

I went on to the new Broughton Secondary School which was built some time in the 1960s at Carrington Road.

The old school building, on the corner of Broughton Road and McDonald Road, continued to be used for other educational purposes and is still standing, unlike the High school I attended at Carrington Road which has now been knocked down and a new one built on the same site."

The Photo

"I don't know anyone in this photograph, but maybe you will recognise someone or have some memories of the School.

Is that a teacher with the class or the Headmaster, John Watson as mentioned on the cover?"
