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