 John O'Groats 1926
Girl With Slate Enlarged

Picture supplied Hugh Ross
"The girl holding the name slate is Emily Rosie and on HER right is Mary Manson (my mother)". - Hugh
"The Teacher in the JOG 26 photo is Miss Robertson but I know no more of her at present.
I have a couple more of that era but they need extensive repair and will take me some time!.
Am impressed with your site and reckon I've contributed to your hit figures on a regular basis.
I like the obvious pan-caithness approach, all too often we stick to our own patch.
To put a chronological anchor on me I attended WHS 1960-66"   --  Hugh Ross 1 April  2001
