Memories of school days rekindled

The Kirkintilloch Herald’s recent Window on the Past supplement brought back a flood of memories for readers.

The Herald asked for information about this photo of pupils at Torrance School with their teacher.

Herald reader Duncan McDonald (86), formerly of Torrance, who now lives in Milngavie, was able to help out with most of the names.
