I think you missed one. Middle row, 4th girl looks like Katherine Hastings and I think she lived in Saltcoats, as you went over the brae near the railway station. There used to be a 'cabin' shop on the brae, and I remember looking down on the house. I was Sandra Smith, in the photo and I remember most of the names well.

I've just realized that I made a mistake on the 2nd row. It's correct apart from.....between Hazel Woods and Janice Black is (I think) Katherine Hastings. So the rest of the names have to move one along. Sorry about that.

Are you sure that it is 1959?. I think it may be earlier, perhaps 1954-55.

I think you are right. I would have been about 8 years old in this (I think). Doesn't the memory play tricks. I remembered after my 'correction' that I'd already corrected it before. Thanks for pointing it out. I only visit now and then, and get a bit confused these days.

Incredible to think everybody in this photograph has or soon will be having their 70th birthday shortly.I hope most of us made it as we look to have been a handsome class.

So sad that Billy and Mary are gone and possibly others.
I'm still 'kicking' here in Melbourne Australia.
Love looking at the photos and remembering good friends and pals.
Thanks for the memories. Back in Scotland 15/6/2018 to visit Denny again
