School Photograph

Reay, Caithness

Early 1900s

Thank you to Jim Menzies, Windsor, Ontario, Canada for providing the photograph above of a school class in Reay, Caithness in the north of Scotland, probably in the early 1900s.

There was just one name written on the frame of this photo:

      -  'D Menzies' written beside the gentleman at the top-right.

Jim wrote:

"I  know that the picture was taken between 1899 and 1906, as this is the timeframe my grandfather was the teacher or schoolmaster at Reay school.

I have tried, unsuccessfully, to match other pictures I have of my uncles with the school children shown. At least one of them would have been old enough by 1899 to be in school and I do have information that they attended this school. My own father was too young, so I know he is not there. Sometimes I find it best to put something aside for a while, then take a fresh look and see if I notice something new that clues me in."

Question

If you recognise any of the children on this photo, or can discover in which year the photo was taken, please e-mail me and I will pass on the details to Jim.

Thank you.    - Peter Stubbs
