Old Photos?

"Does anyone have any photos of Milton House Primary School between 1964 and 1967?  I loved that school, but haven't any photos and would love to see some.

I also went to Jimmy's until about 1972.  Has anybody got any photos to share from these years, there?  I'm nearly 50 now so it would be good to look back.

Lorraine Gulam, Clermiston, Edinburgh:  October 9, 2007

There If you know of any old photos of Milton House Primary School taken between 1964 and 1967 please e-mail me and I will pass on your message to Lorraine Gulam.

Thank you.    Peter Stubbs:  October 11, 2007

The name, J Tyler(?), 1913, is on the back of the badge.  If anybody would like to claim this badge, I'll make the arrangements for them."

Marching

"I have fond memories of attending Milton House Primary School.  The everlasting memory I have is of marching up and down the stairs to the dulcet tones of military music.

It certainly kept us all in time!"

School Name

"I've discovered that the school is now called 'The Royal Mile School'.  Does anybody know the reason for this name change?"

School Name

"My Dad was the Janitor at the school for 25 years and was there when the name was changed.  A number of primary schools in the area were amalgamated and they changed the name to try and keep everyone happy."

Houses

Chessels Court

"I was born in 1949 and lived at 4 Chessels Court on the top floor - last house. There were 4 houses on each floor.  They had outside toilets and gas light.

It was a really great place to live - with an air raid shelter separating our close from Maitland's Close.

I don't recognise the name, Maitland's Close.  Was it, perhaps, Milne's Close
- Peter Stubbs:  14 October 2014
