Thank you to Ian Thomson for sending me this photograph, taken about 70 years ago.

"This pic is from my mother's old album, dated in her writing on the back, 1938.  It is a postcard-size photo yellow with age.   The photo is of my brother's class at Corstorphine School.

I've removed some of the yellowing , using Photoshop.  -  Peter Stubbs.

My brother's name is Jim.  He is in the 2nd back row, 6th from the left.  Jim and I both worked for the plumber, Fell & Mathieson, St John's Road, Corstorphine before migrating to Australia.

Jim is now aged 79.  He followed me to Australia in 1961 and now lives in Maitland, New South Wales.  He is well known for his wild life photography and has an exhibition gallery in Maitland.  He loves the bush."
