The teacher is Jessie Munro. Her collar is the final proof, as she wore ones like that all her life.When was Maggie Gape born? Comment left on 30 March 2013 at 14:48 by Ruth MacGregor

Apart from Eva Macdonald (I think) 4th from right, and possibly Margaret Isaacson. 2nd from left, front row girls, looks like one of the Matheson's, maybe Derek or Donald back row left. Must be early thirties. Comment left on 01 April 2013 at 15:22 by Dorothy Ewen (Robertson)
I think the girl on third right is Eva Mcdonald who had the chip shop, went to New Zealand to live. Comment left on 03 April 2013 at 21:49 by Anonymous
That looks a bit like my Dad back row right. Not sure though. Iris would know some of the faces.
