Hi Ian. I have just been given a copy of this photo by the daughter of Maisie Rannie, nee Leask, who I believe taught at Stromness Academy before moving to Canada. She lived in Binscarth, Manitoba and has just died, aged 95. All the people pictured signed the back of the photo!

I think you're referring to the pic you posted yourself - picture #27236 - Chris, not the one above.

After my mother passed away we went through all her photos and papers. When I came to Orkney in Aug 2013 I brought old letters and photos for the Archives. Both these pictures were given to Chris Macrea.
