"Dux, second on left, front row, Miss A. Sutherland"
As stated in the original print, my great-Aunt Anne (Ira) Sutherland (Dux Pupil of Dornoch Academy 1928) is in the middle row, second from left, not the front row.
Unfortunately the Historylinks watermark blurs the information.
If possible in future for other such photos with information at the bottom it might be better to put the watermark in a blank part of the photo.~ Thank you. Your comment has been noted. ~ Administrator
