Headmaster

"It is interesting to see Mr Mulvey (top left in this photo) who was Headmaster at that time. He then moved, probably about 1955, to the new RC school, St John Vianney at Gilmerton."

Rugs

"I certainly recognise the rugs in the photo above.  I'm sure they came from Mr Mulvey’s office.  They also appear in Photo 2 below, which I submitted;  it was taken about 1953."

Recent Photo

"I took the Photo 3 below in November 2009.  It shows how the school site has been redeveloped.  This photo looks to the spot where Photo 1  was taken. The sloping wall to the garden of what was the annex is still there."

Toilet Block

"A few years after I left St Mary’s, a new toilet block was built at that spot.  Any of those who went to the school in my period would agree that it was long overdue."
