The Photo

Thank you to David Nelson for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of his class at Leith Walk Primary School, taken on the day of the Qualifying Dance.  David believes that this photo was taken probably around 1957.

Unfortunately, there was a little damage to the photo with a few bits of the faces missing.  I've done myself to repair it, but apologise for the quality of restoration of some of the faces, including the boy at the bottom-left.


David sent me this photo in response to comments from Christine Anderson on in the East Thomas Street recollections page of this web site.

"I notice David Nelson from East Thomas Street has been in touch    He was my Partner for my Qualifying Dance.

I did not want him and he did not want me but as we were the only two left Mr Harper made us a pair."
