"This photo was taken at James Clark High School.  The year was 1949.

I don't remember any of the names.  It's a pity about that. "

Several former pupils of James Clark School have sent their recollections of Edinburgh to the EdinPhoto web site, so perhaps one of them will see this photo and recognise some of the pupils in it.

"My sister, Muriel Torrie, is in the blonde girl in the centre of the front row (sixth from the left) in this photo.  She was the Dux of the class and knit her own jumper to wear for this picture.

I've lived in America for the last 56 years, and also graduated from James Clark school."
