Thank you to Jan Wilson for allowing me to reproduce this photo.

Jan wrote:

Around 1950

"I believe that this photo would have been taken around 1950.

As I remember, this was a pre-school class that we attended before we went up to Craiglockhart Primary."

Janice Wilson (née Hall):  September 3+17, 2011

 

Question

Can anybody else help me understand what class this was?  I am not sure how to interpret Jan's reference to a 'pre-school class' above.

At what age would the pupils have attended the 'pre-school class'?  The pupils in the photo above look to me to be perhaps about 7 years old.

Peter Stubbs, Edinburgh:  September 20, 2011

 

Reply

Thank you to Lynda Maine for explaining:

"When we started at Craiglockhart, at the age of five, it was at the Infant Annexe.

At age seven, we moved  to the  bigger school in Ashley and met up with rest of the class that went to the Infant school at Craiglockhart.

Lynda Maine, Colinton Mains, Edinburgh:  September 25, 2011
