Looking for a School Photo


"On my last trip back to Edinburgh, I visited my first school, Lorne Street,  I got talking to the janitor.

I asked him if the piece of  sandstone, where I used to sharpen my slate pencil, was still sticking out of the wall around the play area, and we managed to find it.

I could not try it out,  as I had no slate pencil with me.  Does anyone remember when we used slate boards?"
