1952 Photo

"Sheila Brunton, top left in this 1952 photo, is my cousin.  Though I knew she went to Trinity Academy, this is the first photo evidence I have of her being there.

I also went to Trinity, but not until 1963-70.   Could you contact Joyce Messer, and offer her the opportunity to contact me if she wishes.  [I've done that now, Brian  -  Peter Stubbs:  August 29, 2008.]

Indeed, it's a small world when I see that Joyce is living in North Island NZ and Iím sort of 'just down the road' in Dunedin in the South Island, and yet the link is made through EdinPhoto!"
