Some of the faces in this early Cromarty school pic are.. Douglas Kelly, John Macdonald, Linda Brewster, Raymond Maclean, Donald Macintosh, Douglas Cooper... and many more... Anyone still in Cromarty recognise themselves in this group shot? Comment left on 04 February 2003 by John Macdonald
I see myself 5th from the right in the front row. I think Ruth Newell is next to me. That picture must be two classes as Kenneth Macaulay was a year ahead of me. I think Heather Hossack is third from the left and John Watson is third from the right in the middle row. Comment left on 30 March 2003 by Hazel Clark (Thomson)

The more I look at this photo the more I think I am seated 2nd form the end on the right of the front row next to Vi Jack. I don't have a copy of this photo but am told by my mother I had a scowl on my face! I attended Cromarty School about 1951/52 not sure for how long.

Arnold Eastwood - top row, second from right Comment left on 08 April 2004 at 12:09 by Marianne Eastwood (wife)
This is probably Miss McKenzie's primaries 1 and 2, photographed in early summer, towards the end of the 1952-1953 school year, with a few early starters for the1953-54 primary 1( the class that is pictured several years later in No. 74 [1957] ). I think that the girl on the right end of the front row is Jeanette McPhee and the girl two places from her could be her sister Doreen.l Comment left on 18 January 2005 at 23:30 by Christopher Hart
