Wardie School

Class Photograph

Wardie School Pupils  -  Around 1945

This looks like a photo that has seen a lot of use.  I tried digitally restoring it, but after spending an hour on it,
 I decided that I preferred the original photo, complete with all its cracks, fading and other damage (below).

One of the girls in this photo is Judith, 2nd sister of Douglas Roberts
She is 5th from the right in the 2nd back row.  She was born in 1938

Please email me if you recognise anybody in this photo.

Two Pupils Identified

"I'm quite sure the girl in the middle of the front row front row, 7th from the left, is Eleanor Annand.  The back of her house looked onto my house.  She  lived in Crewe Terrace and I lived in Crewe Place.

I believe that the boy, 5th from the right on the back row, is my cousin, Billy Law.   I could be wrong about him, but don't think so.  However that was a very long time ago."
