Around 1968, Primary 7 (Alice Wilson's class) were doing a project on 'Victorians'. They followed this up with an exhibition in a general purpose room in the school. I remember on display was a bar of Fry's chocolate dating from Victorian times.

This is not Park School trying to sell books, but Invergordon Primary School Primary 7 putting on a Victorian exhibition.

Thank you for identifying what was happening in this photo and the caption has been suitably updated.

I think the girl on the far left is Rhona Patience. She lived in the house above the Co-op.

Stirring from the old grey matter - the Victorian bar of chocolate for the exhibition was I think provided by David Fleming which came from his grandmother who stayed in Saltburn. Due to its age it neither looked like nor smelt like chocolate as we know it but was nevertheless unique! I was involved in the exhibition being Primary 7 at the time.

The gentleman in the top hat was Andrew Mcgibbon - 'Twiggy' as he was called! I remember that exhibition well- I also remember the Fry's chocolate cream! Twiggy joined the army - the intelligence branch as I remember.

I note that all you guys were in that class! (except Malcolm, of course). I remember the Invergordon Weekly. Was it produced in school? (Invergordon Primary School).

I seem to remember trying a tiny bit of the chocolate!! It was, I think, an uneaten ration or somesuch from the Boer War. I will try to get it to the museum, along with some copies of the "Invergordon Weekly", to which Graham and I were contributors.

I remember my dress was yellow and the exhibition was in what used to be the art room. Mrs Wilson was our teacher and we were in P7. Mrs Wilson was a wonderful teacher and I loved doing this project. I also loved going to the Mod in Dingwall reciting our poems which we won.
