Culbokie Primary School, 1961
The following information has been provided by Angus Bethune, formerly Glentyan. The photograph came about as a result of an exchange of information through Facebook and was provided by Effie Finlay. Angus considers the date to be summer 1961 (he is off the photo on the right!). A question has been raised as to why Elizabeth (Totsie) Mackenzie isn't in the photograph. It has now been suggested that this could be a Sunday School picnic - hence the icecreams. Also, could the lady on the left (S) be Marjory MacIntyre?
There are some gaps in Angus's identification, such as K, and S. Don't worry about L as he/she is invisible!
