found this in a box of old pictures and have asked several older folk who this group are but no body has any ideas. It might not be in Stronsay

Very interesting photo. Thomas, George and Ellen are first cousins and they married siblings. Ellen would be about 5, George about 6 and Thomas about 7 when this was taken if 1920. Would this have been the whole Egilsay school at the time?
