Monochrome photograph of the Sixth-year Dornoch Academy pupils snapped by classmate Alex Dingwall with his remarkable 27s 6d Brownie 127 camera towards the end of summer term 1959, shortly before they left school. They are, front, from

Odd girl out is Anna Ross, who had left school the year before, and was at home in the area visiting that day.

The picture brought back wonderful memories of when I was a student at Dornoch Academy 1955 - 1957.

I knew three of the students from Embo: Jessie Joan, Anna Ross, and Ken Fraser.

It is a good picture! Thanks to Alex Dingwall for the memories via this picture!
