Comments:
After seeing this photo I am almost certain that Murdo Macpherson in the front row is my dad. Other names come to mind, as my dad often spoke about his school days. One especially, who I think is related is Hugh Murray, on my Grannys` side of the family. Other names that I remember are, Harry Sutherland, Bert Leslie, Willie Mathieson and Harry Sutherland.

I am almost certain that the teacher Miss Miller was my maternal grandmother's sister. Her brother was John Munro Miller who went out to South Africa where he died after only a few years.
Any information will be greeted with great joy.
