This is a photograph taken of a Stromness Primary class, I would guess sometime in the 1940's ???? My aunt, Sadie Campbell can be seen second row, extreme right, with Freddie Young standing behind her and in front of the teacher. I am sorry I have no more information about this picture but would welcome any info on it.

I think the boy on the very left of the front row looks like Jimmy Leask who used to paint for T G Muir & Son

The teacher is Ruby Brown, sister of the writer George MacKay Brown, she also taught in Rousay, in the 1930s.
