Thank you to David Robb for sending me this photo of the infants at Fort Street School, Leith.

New Year 1960

"The photo was taken at New Year 1960.  The photo is of the Infants at Fort Street school.  It was not a very big school.

Being only four years old, I don't remember much about my time at Fort Street.  I lived in Argyll Street, round the corner, at the time."

Who Else is in this Photo?

"I hope somebody recognises themself here. It would be nice to see who else is in this photo."

"I may be mistaken, but I think Iím the one in front of the two female teachers - under the ''u' in 'Guid'.

I was Dux in either 1961 or 1962.  (My memory's going.)"

Bill Murray

"The big lad standing to attention at the other side is definitely Billy Murray.  He looked just the same when I saw him at his fiftieth birthday."
