Recollections

Dave Elgin

Dundee, Tayside, Scotland

Thank you to Dave Elgin, now living and working as a Maths Teacher in Dundee for providing three of the boys' names in the photograph above.

Schools

"I attended South Bridge School from 1953 to 1960, and then moved onto James Clark School from 1960 to 1963.

We lived in the Pleasance at number 94 in the top flat of the tenement block and actually played in the area behind the block.

Dumbiedykes Survey Photograph - 1959  -  Waste ground behind The Pleasance ©

I have happy memories of primary school, and in particular I recall Miss Heatherwick and a Miss Lockhart who taught me for a few years.

On moving to James Clark I remember the maths teachers Mr Kerr and Mr Dixon and the English teacher Mr Malcolm. I also remember being taught metalwork and woodwork neither of which I was any good at. It came as a surprise to me at the age of fifteen to be awarded the dux medal for Science in the school.  I still have that medal to this day.

My older brother John and my sister Annette also attended the same schools as I did."
