Leith Technical College Matriculation Card 1938-39


About this memory

Ben Hendry, aged nineteen.

"[My father] had to leave school in 1934 aged fourteen. His father had died when he was ten so he had to work. Children (usually sons) only stayed on at school then if parents could afford it. He went to night school at the Leith Nautical to join the printing trade." - Patricia Anderson (née Hendry)
