    I think that this was taken at Leith Walk Primary, bottom playground. If you look at the blazer badge of the girl second right in the second row from the back you can just make out the W intersected by the L and the intertwined S. The S is just visible on the blazer of the boy second right in the front row.
    I think I recognise 2 classmates from earlier years -Billy Hall(?) in the front row and Mary Murdoch in the third from the back. There are other faces I recognise but cant put names to.
    Everyone looks a good bit more grown up than in the earlier class photos I have so I would make a guess at this being 1958/early 1959-just before secondary.

    Hello Ian, thank you for identifying the school as Leith Walk Primary and for putting names to some of the faces. Very observant of you to make out the lettering on the badge on the blazer pocket! I shall update the title to Leith Walk Primary and alter the date. Thanks again!
