Last week’s picture of Maddiston Primary School children was noticed by Anne Barron who was in the photo.

Her name, however, was listed as ‘Isabel Muirhead’ who was in fact listed as ‘unknown’ fourth in from the left of the second row.

Anne was six in primary two at the time the photo was taken and remembers Maddiston fondly growing up there before moving to Falkirk.

She said: “We stayed in the pre-fab houses on the ‘Coal Road’, the road to Whitecross bu they’re no there now. Neither is the school mind you.

“School was much different back then to what it is now I would imagine. Back then you got a clip round the ear if you were bad, but I was quite quiet at school.

“I still se one teacher I had, Miss Stirling. She used to come into a hairdressers I worked to have her hair done too.”
