Cornaigmore school 1915

Cornaigmore School ca 1915, Headmaster Mr Ewan on right. The school mistress may be Betty Ann MacDonald of Cornaigbeg.

We have a number of school and form photographs –135 to be exact – but we are very keen to copy more,from long ago to last year.

If you have some, please let us know. We can copy it and get it back to you in a few days, and telling us who is in them is just as important.
