Have you noticed that when you look at school photographs of yesteryear, you sometimes get the impression that some of the faces look familiar from your own schooldays - - - that some of them were in your class. It's usually only a fleeting aberration, as when you see the name of the school, and the date, you realise that the photograph has nothing to do with you, and that memory has deceived. I think that whatever the school, the uniform produces a kind of 'sameness' which sort of 'de-characterises' (if that is the correct word to use) the wearer. Even up to the mid-1950's, images of Primary School children, where no uniforms are involved, the scenario is similar. We were, in the main all dressed similarly. Money was in short supply back then, and it wasn't until the austerity of the post-war years had diminished, that variety of style expanded, and mundanity weakened. Going back to mistaken identities:- When I first saw this picture, I would have, 'sworn blind' that I recognised three of these girls as being in the same year as myself at Cockburn. It was only when I saw the date, 1933, that I realised that I was totally misguided. I wasn't even born then. - - - How wrong can one be?
