Two copies of a photograph of Class 3 of Embo Public School, 1912
Picture added on 24 April 2008
I have puzzled over this photo for some years now in the hope of identifying some of the children... but I have to now admit failure. Both my parents were at Embo school in 1912 but as they were then 12 years old I guess that they were further along the road than Class 3 in that year. Some of the children here are identical to children that I knew in Embo school in the 1940s so I must assume that they are related. For example, the girl on the extreme right of the middle row is identical to Margaret Mackay (King) of 3 Macleod Terrace so this girl must be her aunt or mother. The boy second from the right in the back row is identical to Alastair Fraser (Frati)so he must be Jessie aigh Gallie's husband whose name now escapes me...and so on. Can someone who is near to the Highland Archives in Inverness not go there and get the Embo School Class Attendance list for Class 3 in 1912 so that I can be put out of my misery...!
