2nd row on the left end, think it is Jimmy Ross; same row 2nd in from right is John (Sconner) Ross. George Russell middle of back row lived next door to me in Outram Street. Sadly he is no longer with us.

Hello Janet, how are you? I'm sure the boy at the end of the second row is Jimmy Ross. Can't come up with the names of the others.

Janet, my brain is ticking over here. I know the faces but the names are escaping me. Next to June Ross on the left is Gardenia Girvan. Is that Sheena Mackenzie next to Ishbel Grant or my cousin Ishbel Mackenzie? I still think that is Priscilla ? between Seonaid and Gardenia. Is that a Ross (Outram Street) next to Gordon Will - and "Korky" Macdonald next to George Russell? Then next to him I think it is John Johnston. Then John Ross (Tout) next to him.

Hi Rosalie, now that you mention it am sure it is Ishbel Mackenzie between Ishbel Grant and myself. My memory has come back and the Pricilla has the surname Colwell.
Hi Cousin Ian, how are you doing?

I think the girl in the middle of the middle row is Ishbel Mackenzie (Rosalie Graham's cousin).

Second row boy on extreme left is Jimmy Ross; stayed in Outram Street. The boy next to him looks like Willie Macleod. Rear row second right I would say is Podge Ross, not his brother Sconner?

I can verify that the girl on the right of Ishbel Grant is not Sheena Mackenzie - wrong year.

Hi its good to see all the old school photos and my friends from many years ago. Did Sheena Mackenzie live opposite the post office?

How many in this photo still live in Invergordon?
Added by Gordon Will on 25 February 2010
Hi Gordon, my memories of my school days are so vivid which is surprising as we are all now pushing 70. Wonder how many of us are still about? In the photo, if there had been a prize for the biggest hair ribbon I would have got it.

They are back in fashion so my daughters tell me. Does Terry Waiker still live in Shore Road? I should say we are scattered all over the world now.

Hi Gordon. It's so good to see a comment from you on this terrific site. Yes, Terry Walker still lives in Invergordon, but I don't know her married name or where she lives. Your brother Doug often comments on these pages and I always look forward to what he has to say.

Hi Rosalie, great site, just found it. Did you live opposite Slater's Bakery? - I was a message-boy there. I think your cousin Amelia Mukle lived at the back of us.
Added by Gordon Will on 26 February 2010
Hi Gordon, good to hear from you. Yes, I lived opposite Slater's with my sisters and my Granny. Amelia did live at the back of your house, in Clyde Street, but she is my very good friend (still is) not my cousin. Where are you now?
Added by Rosalie Graham (Samaroo) on 01 March 2010
Hi Rosalie, I now live in Boston Lincs. Was up in Inverg last…..Lot of changes, met Terry Walker her mam, what a wonderful women she for her age, missed a few people I wanted to see, maybe next time. Sea front altered a lot, old house still there.
Added by Gordon Will on 22 August 2010
Hi Gordon, good to hear from you. I live in Norwich, Norfolk and I try to go home every year. There are lots of changes in Inverg but it is and always will be ....HOME!!

I vaguely remember Amelia Muckle, even then her name stood out as unusual. I have never in my life come across anyone with the same surname. It must be Scottish but from what part?
