Thank you for putting this picture up, My father Norman Stevenson is in this photo. This is the first picture I have seen off him as a boy as all there old photographs have been lost over time. It was nice for my father to see also, remind him off his school days
Thank you

Thank you so much for posting this. I used to have a copy of this photo until 20 years ago, but threw it away. Brian Peace and Jim Park became really good bass guitarists. John "Nonny" Scholly a drummer, and Colin Omond a guitarist. So did I. Go to Youtube and search The Human Beast. Would love to hear from anyone in this photo. I am a sentimental Scotsman.

Sitting on the bench 4th from left, I left Orkney shortly after this photo was taken. Memories are vague,but have kicked in a bit since my brother posted this.

Gordon Liddle, who looked nothing like his brother. This would have been Primary 3. I was in P4 with Miss Crawford (later Mrs. Kemp) the same year, having had the wonderful Miss Fotheringhame the previous year.

Did any of these children (apart from Calum) live in Garrioch Street?
