Ann Forsyth (née Sutherland)

Thank you to Ann Forsyth for telling me more about many of the pupils in her class in these three photos.  Ann wrote:

"Here are are 3 photos of my class at Dean Village Primary School.. Photo No.3 (May 1949) is probably the latest one. We all look a bit younger in the other two.

These are the boys and girls whose names I remember:

Parents

* denotes refers to the occupations of parents.
 Lots of the parents were caretakers of large properties and lived in the basements. William Street was not the up-market place then that it is nowadays!

Orphanage Boys and Girls

** denotes an orphanage boy or girl.  I don't recall any animosity between the village children and the orphanage children.

We were all taught by parents and teachers alike, to be kind to them because their parents were not there to look after them. It was, however, difficult to get to know the children as they were governed by strict rules imposed by Mr. Barnes and Miss Beattie. eg They were not allowed to play after school because they all had to return to the orphanage by a certain time. Institution rules!

Perhaps I had more opportunity than most to befriend them because the were marched to Church and Sunday School at the Belford Church every Sunday.  Some were fine but a lot of them were unhappy.  I'd like to know what happened to the boys who were in my class

Thank you to Avril Finlayson Smith for sending me her husband's comments about Photo 2  above.

Tom and Halbert

"My husband (Tom) knew two of the boys in this photo, Tom Begbie and Halbert Trench.

-   Tom Begbie lived at 114 Rose Street Lane South

-  Halbert lived on the north side of Rose Street between Castle Street and Fredrick Street."

Accident 1

"Seeing Tom and Halbert in the class photo brought a few memories back to Tom who also lived at 114, one of these being when Tom Begbie lifted his young brother James, off a spike on an iron railing in Princes Street Gardens at Castle Terrace.

His brother had slipped when climbing on the railing and a spike went up through his chin and out through his nose.  His brother, Tom, then took him over the road to the nurses' home there.

Tom was a very brave brother.  If he was to do such a thing, these days, he would have been given a 'Bravery Award' for such a feat."

Accident 2

"Another time, Tom pulled his brother out of the Dean River when they had been skating on thin ice."
