"This photo is of my P7 class at Flora Stevenson's Primary School.  It was taken in either 1960 or 1961. Unusually, our teacher, Miss Cook was absent when the photo was taken. Equally unusually, I had the foresight to add the names of her class mates on the rear of the image."

Carol Conrad, Leith, Edinburgh:  May 5, 2014

The list of names on the back of Carol's photo enabled her to compile the list below for me.    Thank you Carol.

"I attended Flora Stevenson School from 1954 to 1961.

I've just  read the note from Carol Conrad (above), who I DO remember, BUT she couldn't remember my surname on the school photo for 1961 - it is Christopher WARBRICK."

Class Mate

"I still see, on a regular basis, a fellow classmate, George Robertson, who in fact, was my best friend in Miss Cook's class!"

Teachers and Janitor

"I well remember Miss Cook, Miss Bishop our class teacher before Miss Cook, and before her, Miss Andrews.

I remember Miss Cook hauling out the old wooden wireless from the cupboard, so that we could listen to 'Singing Together' with William Appleby introducing!!

At first,  Mr Reid was our Headmaster.  He was followed by Mr Henderson.   The janitor was a Mr Smith throughout my time there."

Air Raid Practices

"I also remember the air-raid practices.  (The Cold War was in earnest then!)"
