Searching for a photo of

My Dad

Walter McGrouther

"My Dad, Walter McGrouther, has sadly passed away.  I am looking for a photo of him as a child.  He was born in 1931 in Buccleuch Street, and  went to Sciennes School, approx. 1935-37, then to James Clark Secondary School, both in Edinburgh.

I've seen class photos from both schools that include my Dad's brothers, Ronnie and Rab McGrouther, but I've not yet found any photos of my Dad's class.  Do you know where I might be able to find one?"
