I think the date on this photo is wrong: My dad, Donnie Calder, is in the back row here, but he was born in 1916, so if this is 1922/23, he'd be only 6 or 7 years old, and these students are much older than that.

[Date has now been changed to 1927/28 assuming Donnie Calder was c 11 years old at the time - further refinement would be welcomed. - JEB Administrator HIL]
