1908 Schoolchildren

With thanks to Gordon Cook who shared this great photo. Not a lot is known about it, but it is schoolchildren at High Blantyre School on Hunthill Road during 1908. The boys names aren’t known but they would have been born between 1900 to 1903 or so.

Sometimes a lack of info on a picture makes you think. What became of these lads? How did they live their lives? One or two of them may have just been age to go off to fight in WW1. Were they happy, loved, settled? Are any of us today now related to them? Questions!
