Longstone School

1949-1955

"The photo at the top of this page, taken in 1954-55, is of the same class as was photographed in their first year at Longstone Primary school in 1949-50:

1949-50

  Longstone Primary School Class - 1949-50  -  First Year

Here they are in their final year at the primary school.  The photo was taken by the class teacher, Mr Gibson, using a delayed action camera.  (Mr Gibson, by the way, was a man who made liberal use of the tawse.)

Union Canal Viaduct

In the background is the viaduct carrying the Union Canal across the Water of Leith with a glimpse of  the 'waterfall' from the canal that used to freeze into icicles during harsh winters.

The 'waterfall' was created when surplus water was released from the Union Canal, into the Water of Leith  at the point where the canal passed over the river.   - Peter Stubbs:  July 20, 2008

Three Schools

The Longstone school building was too small to cope with all the children coming from the newly built estates of prefabs and later of permanent housing around the village.

Classes were therefore spread between Longstone, Slateford and Juniper Green village schools.   We were bussed to Juniper Green.  One day the driver, who did not know the way, relied on some of the boys to direct him.  They mischievously misdirected him so that we didn't get to Juniper Green till near dinner time.  The driver was not pleased.

The head of Longstone School was a Mr Munro.
