Extract from email Oct.2007, Pauline
Dear Mr McArthur. While I was browsing through your website I
came across the Thomson Street Class photo of 1976/77 & I recognised
one of the pupils who happens to be my ex-husband. Top row number
3( second child from teacher). His name is Aaron Hutchison. He is
now 40 & lives in Bridgeton. I hope this is of help to you.
Regards. Pauline Coleman. ( see below)

Hi There, I was just going through your great website and came across an
old class picture from Thomson St Primary School 76/77 and I couldnt
help but notice that the lady who sent in the picture cant have a very
good memory, as the boy she says is her husband, well, isnt. His name is
Robin Barton and I should know because the girl in the front row (5th
from the left) is my little sister Gillian Sawers who is 5 years younger
than Aaron Hutchison who I also ran around with
on my high horse I'll just fill in a couple of the missing names
Top: (Teacher) Mrs Dickson, 3rd Robin Barton, 3rd Michelle Allen
(who is now bra tycoon Michelle Mone), 5th Stewart Holdsworth
Mid: 8th Owen Murray
Front: 2nd Jane Walker, 4th Deborah Hood, 8th Gillian Sawers, end
of row Laura Harvey
for your time and for printing the picture. Keep up the good work!

"What happened to my update to your picture of thomson st. school, or is
your website only catering to those of a "brigton" persuasion"?

Tut tut nae need for the sly
IF my website was only for
those of the ‘brigton’ persuasion then your sister's school photo
wouldn’t be on my website in the first place, would it?
1. I do this is my own free time
2. I have a backlog of hundreds of emails 3.
