   Riverside Senior Secondary School   c1959-60             Page1  page2  page3 

June 2015, Tom Kubie, Leeds, England (former teacher)
The pictures were taken in 1959 or 1960 as I joined Riverside in circa October 1958.  I hope that the classroom photographs are of good enough quality to scan; they were processed in the school's photographic club which I ran for some time and was an after hours event.

.A great photograph, Webmaister, where are they all now I wonder, my wife Jessie (nee Blackburn) remembers 'wee Kubie" as to her surprise he gave her an excellent maths exam mark. She left Bernard Street School in 1961.

I would never have got in any of his photies. Think I was too much of a bad boy for him, thought he was helluva heavy handed with the belt!
