The photo above is a view of the rear school building. During my school days it was used for art and science classes.
Remember the Cranston butcher shop
on Nithsdale Road?
It's still there.
We were amused to see the original "Retail Prices of Meat", according to "The Meat (Prices) Order, 1952", displayed in the shop window. One example is ox tail at one shilling and ten pence per pound.
We were kindly given
permission to enter the halls so that I could photograph the entrance to Maxwell Hall, which shows our school motto,
Here are another couple of antiques!!
These were taken in Crieff, where my siblings and I had a family reunion. With Ian's brief visit, it became a small ARAFP reunion
