The Dancer

"I don't know who took this photo.  I don't know the names of most of the people in this photo, and who was that fabulous dancer?  The majority of us went to Murrayburn Primary School at Sighthill Loan.

Who says that summers were better then than they are now?  Just look at the coats, jackets, cardigan and jumpers - and the photo was probably taken in June!"
