The Photograph

Thank you to Andy Tulloch for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of Peffermill School football team, taken in 1960.

Andy tells me that the photo was given to him by A Wanstall (one of the players in the team) after it was saved from being thrown out shortly before the school closed.

The Team

This team won the Craigmillar Community Cup (Senior) Portobello League Pennant in 1959-60.  The Pennant can be seen, held by some of the team in the centre of this photo.
