Ann Blissett (née Meikle)

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

1955

Thank you to Anne Blissett (née Meikle) who previously attended Preston Street Primary School, for sending me this photograph of her class at Moray House secondary school.  Anne believes that this photo is probably of Class 3B, taken in 1955.

Anne hopes to be able to send me the names of some of the pupils in this photo.  I'll add the names to this page when I receive them.

Thank you to George Robinson who wrote:

Houses

"Moray House School was divided into two houses Argyll and Montrose. There were green lapel badges for Argyll and maroon lapel badges for Montrose."

Staff

"The headmaster was George Mowat.  He came from Caithness.

The headmistress was Miss Fleming.

The janitor's first name was Fred. He married one of the pupils not long after she left school."

Date of the Photo

 "I would say the date of the photo, 1955, is correct, as the pupils would have born in 1941."

George Robinson, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh: July 29, 2012

Thank you to George for also telling me the name of some of the pupils and teacher in this photo:

Basketball Players

"Richard Long, David Dirom and Scott Dickson played in the school's basketball team. They provided the basis for the Boroughmuir team when they transferred from Moray House at the age of 15.

Richard joined the police. David became a medical photographer at the University. Scott is no longer with us. They were first class athletes. Richard and David were also members of the Canongate Boys' Club."
