On the photo of Bluevale Primary 1959, girl 2nd row #7 I'm sure is Kathlene Robertson. I had a huge crush on Irene Archibald, also 2nd row. We flitted in 1964. We lived at 32 Carntyne Road (now demolished) and it was a 3 minute walk to school.
Really delightful to come accross this photo on internet. I was "tracing" my old walk to church on Google streetview when I discovered it.
Keep up the good work.
Regards Robert Crawford               
Webmaister: Thank you Robert

I recently saw a post about the above photo from Robert Crawford, he was my pal at school, as he said, he lived on Carntyne road and I lived just round the corner at 7 Todd street. I flitted away shortly after Robert when I was about 10 and we haven't been in contact since.
I am not in this 1959 photo as I was off school that day. (BTW my mum wrote "May 1960" on the back of my copy as the date of the photo) 
I may be able to add a couple of names.
3rd row number 7 is Hunter Brawley. On the top row number 5, next to Robert I think his surname is MacDonald. 
Maybe whoever sent in the photo might be able to confirm.
I would be happy for you to pass on my email address to Robert that we might connect again after all these years.
I have a later class photo (c1963/64) of this class that I can send you.
Thanks for your efforts maintaining the site
Regards John Laing
