 Dalmarnock Primary School  - Class of 1895  &  c1902

January 2003. This photograph was sent to me by Gavin C.W.Murdoch, the grandson of Dalmarnock School's     Dux medalist in 1902, Gavin Murdoch.    
Gavin would have been 11 / 12 years old in 1902 when he won the Dux medal, therefore assuming these children to be approx five years old, that would date this class photograph to be 1895, the year the Dalmarnock Dux Board starts from. How wonderful getting a photograph so old.

As you look at the picture
Gavin Murdoch
is standing in the back row two along from the teacher and to the left of the tall boy in the photograph 

 

.
Class of 1900-02
We reckon this picture was taken sometime in 1900 - 1902.
Gavin Murdoch is in the centre of the second front row ( ie 3 boys either side of him )
A few glum faces in this class !

See Gavin's photograph wearing his Dux Medal
 

Wonderful pictures that were unearthed because Gavin's grandson had commissioned a family history from a genealogy company in Edinburgh, Scotgenes, who contacted the school through our website. It soon became apparent that we could help each other and Gavin now has a lifetime entry with these wonderful photographs in our website. The grandson hopes to retrace his grandfather's steps and visit our school in 2007, which is the fiftieth anniversary of Gavin's 1957 visit.
