Thank you to Gus Coutts who wrote:

Class Photos

"I was interested to see the photo of Duddingston School Primary 1 Class of 1947.

Duddingston School Class  -  Primary 1, 1947

I was in the preceding year's (1945/46) Primary 1 Class and would be interested to know if there is a photo of that class.  I can't remember if one was taken."

Teachers

"Our teacher was Mrs. RuncieI think that is also her in the 1947 photo:

The Headmistress was Mrs Jones."

The Mill Lade

"The mill lade for Duddingston Mill which ran from the still existing weir in Duddingston Golf Club and under Duddingston Cross Roads passed alongside the school playground."

School Demolition

"The school buildings were demolished around 1990 and houses were built on the site."

"The reply from a Gus Coutts above reminded me that the school teacher was indeed Mrs Runcie

I (with the frown) am standing beside her in this photo.  I don't remember the names of any of the other pupils."
