Catrine School photo

Catrine School 1922.  [Some names we do have, no particular order] Willie Paterson, Davie Johnstone, Miss Milne [teacher], Willie Archibald, Alec Niven, Matt Taylor, George McDowall is second left in the front row and we know he was born in 1911. So we are guessing he is about 11 here.

The Wilson Hall 1950's

J McDowall loaned me this picture of an event in Catrine's Wilson Hall in the 50's. Anyone remember this do? According to Billy McIlveny from Canada his mother and father are there and it was a Masonic dinner and dance.
