Thank you to Evelyn Hunt (née

I'm in the Photo
"Your site brings back memories of my very happy
Thanks to Joan Martin for providing the class photo
from East Preston Street School, circa 1950/51. I am in the photo, 2nd row from
the front, 4th from the left. I'm the pouty girl in the blue satin dress
and ribbon that my granny made for me.
It's funny the things that you remember and that you
don't remember. Unfortunately, I can't recollect the names of classmates except
for the girl on end of 2nd row on left. Her name was Mary and she lived
either on South Clerk or Clerk Street.
I lived with my mum and granny on 3rd floor, 27 East
Preston Street, right beside the cemetery and across the street from the school.
James Clark School
I went on to James Clerk School from 1957 to May
1958. Then I immigrated to Toronto with my mum and step-dad.
My closest friends were:
- Ann Taylor
- Rose Wilson
- Lorna McNeil
- Evelyn Swan.
They all lived on South Oxford Street,
except Lorna. She lived down the street.
If anyone can put me in touch with any of my
classmates or friends that would be great
