Cromarty Higher Grade School - 1935

From Dorothy Ewen (nee Robertson)
"My Dad, Donnie Robertson, far left back row would have been ten years old here. Anyone recognise themselves or a parent?"

My uncle, Dod McLeman is standing on the right. Aunt Jean said her sister, Barbara, is also in the picture. I wonder if she is sitting, next to Dod?
Standing, at the other end of that row, is Ian Maclemman, of Navity. His family emigrated to Australia and Ian died there.
Thanks, Aunt Jean!

Who is the young lad sitting in the front row left with a beautifully parted hairdo. We wondered if it was Alfie Skinner who was at school at this time with his friend George Shepherd and May Grant.

I think my late Aunt, Moira Duff, is the fifth girl in from the right in the second row from the front. She married James Urquhart and lived in Dingwall. She died in 2016, aged 90.

If this is who I think it is, it’s Elna Ritchie in the second row from back on the right hand side, not Eleanor. Elna is short for Helena. Elna was my mother’s cousin. My mother Lilias (Bunty) Watt lived in Crieff and was Robert and Agnes Ritchie’s granddaughter. She used to holiday in Cromarty as a child.
