School Photograph - 1961

Cracking photo from Evelyn McNaughton (nee Eastwood). She is 3rd from the left on the front row and recognises Doris Couper at the left end of the row.
Picture added on 08 September 2003
I remember Evelyn well! She was my next door neighbour for a few years and then we met again briefly in the 70s at a disco! Remember that Evelyn?

Girl second from left in middle row is Monica Roehling, top row second left Kenny Macfarlane, top row on right Keith Ross, third right front row Margaret Mackay.
Added by Sue Florence on 30 September 2003
I think the fourth from the left in the middle row is Christopher Rae, the schoolmaster's son.
Added by Campbell Ross on 16 October 2003
The girl 7th from the left in the middle row is Elaine Howse.
Added by Kenny Howse on 18 October 2003
The girl fourth from the right in front is Caroline MacPhee and the boy far left at the back is one of the Singh boys. Their parents had the cafe on Bank Street which is now a house. (Sandstones) I think the girl on the right of Monica Roehling might be Elizabeth MacIntosh who lived out at Shoremills.

Just found the picture gallery from looking at the Cromarty website. Don't have this school photo so fascinated to see it. I am Elizabeth McIntosh, standing between Monica Roehling and Christopher Rae. Think the girl 4th from right is Lydia Mahlitz.

Middle row third from the right is my older brother, Donald Mackenzie. We lived at Cromarty Mains at the time - our father (Bert) worked for Duncan Macpherson. My eldest brother John was in the year above Donald. I was in Primary 1 1963/64.

Many years ago! Memories are fading, but I do recall going with Gurmet to his parents house after school one day. I think Margaret Mackay was a neighbour at Cromarty Mains - my dad Bert, worked on the farm and her father Roddy was the grieve (?)

Tony that's not you in this class photo, you're in the class 2 photo of 1961- not sure but could be Billy Fraser in this one.
Added by Sue Florence on 31 March 2011
I think you're right Donald, my dad is Roddy, my sister is called Sandra, seems like another lifetime ago!

Anyone know Marlene Macphee or sister Doris?
Added by Allison duncan on 13 September 2015
I am also looking for family related to James Maclennan born 21st Aug 1869 in Cromarty. His parents names were Alexander McLeman and Margaret...I have no idea why the name was changed in spelling? I don't know if my mum in her elderly years has changed the spelling as she also has McLennan spelling also in our records!
