    It’s Rob again. The year is 1957-58, and it is Grade 10. I think that there may be some errors in the names, but I am not able to fill in all the blanks. In the 5th row, the third boy over is Ferdie Jessome. There is a miscount in the bodies. You have Ferdie as the second boy. Also, in the second row, the third girl who is standing next to Nancy Jessome, could be Nancy MacLean, as she should be in that class. Also, one of the girls should be Heather McQuarrie who came to our class from Millville. I will contact you, Nancy, when I have done some more research. I have forwarded the photos to two of my sisters, and they may be able to help. I will write to you, Nancy, next week with more details of what I remember.
    Interesting stuff!

      Bingo ! You mentioned Heather MacQuarrie and two names popped into my head: Donalda McQuarrie and Heather MacIvor ?? Donalda was from Sydney Mines and Heather was from Millville both attended Florence School.

      Also, you are right that is Nancy MacLean standing next to me. Her name was omitted.
      Louie Stubbert might be one of the boys (Top Row – Left) Ferdie is #3
      I don’t remember a Marilyn McIntyre or an Anne Barrie? Could they be Donalda and Heather ??

      Looking forward to hearing from you, Rob.
