    Barrowfield Street Primary School  Class of c1918/19         10-11yr olds

 

The First World War Years


Dec.2002,
Class photograph of 1918-19 sent in by Shirley Robb (nee Crainey )  
 
This is Shirley's mother, Mary Crainey (nee Hamilton ), class photograph .
As was common in those days, Mary left school when she was 11 years old to look after the 'weans'.
That was the end of her school days!  Despite her short education you would have been hard put to find a better speller or letter writer.   Mary and her husband emigrated to America in 1956. 
Mary lived to the ripe old age of 93 and died in February 2002. 

In our website her memory liveth for evermore.......
