Old Photos

"I'm looking for any other old photographs of:

-  The Miner's Gala in the 1950s

-  Fernieside Primary School in the 1950s

-  Liberton Secondary School in the  1960s

The photo above of Fernieside School is the only one I have.  I think it would have been taken around 1960.

I have lovely memories of attending Fernieside School, and remember nurse Anderson very well.

1950s

"I attended Fernieside Primary School from 1955 until 1958, before moving to Duddingston Primary.

The only person I recognise in the group photograph is my old pal,  Graeme McGregor (top left).  I lived, then, at 61 Fernieside Crescent and Graeme lived along the road from me."
