Thank you to Alan Watson for providing this photograph of Class 4B at Daniel Stewart's College, Junior School, taken in 1950-51.

Class 4B

"I am first from the right in the front row, and a friend of those days, Graham Henderson, is first from the left in the same row.

I thought it might be of passing interest for you see a couple of lads who used to play in the back garden of his home at 68 Great King Street before the Edinburgh Photographic Society acquired it!

Also in the photo:

-  3rd from the left in the front row; my serious rival for smallest in the class, and now better known for his cycle-route books, Harry Henniker.

-  4th from the right in the back row, another close friend, the late Stuart Henry, one of the first "pirate radio" and Radio 1 disc jockeys.

Class 4B

"I don't know what the 'B' suffix stood for.  Alan Erasmuson is fourth from the left in the second back row.  He was Dux of the School, 1959 -60.  Hardly 'second division'.


"This class photo may be unique as it includes the headmaster Dr H J L Robbie.  Our regular teacher was indisposed on that particular day."


"Stewart's Melville College came about as a merger of Daniel Stewart's College, Melville College, and about 58% of the pupils of John Watson's School when the latter closed and was officially incorporated into George Watson's College."
