I can see Mrs Beckitt at the back Norman her beautiful daughter Margaret is just behind the big lads left shoulder.The girl beside Mrs Beckitt looks like Anita Dathan who lived in Ellison street the house that once where the Tones family lived.
I went on one of these trips from the Quay School around that time (might be the same trip). We went to Edinburgh Zoo, The part I remember most was riding on an Elephant. Mr. Jenkins was the Headmaster and who went with us, a great guy, happy days !
I think the tallest lad in the front could be George Mole. He lived across from the Gem and down a little, my grannie lived directly opposite the Gem. He was a friend of my cousin John Joyce who lived at my grans.
