Cabinet photographs taken c1880 showing boys and girls schools in Dundee. The photographers are D & W Prophet of 23 High Street, and 59 Wellgate, Dundee. Each class of 21 children is accompanied by their form teacher. The boys look uncomfortable in their little semi-tailored tweed and velvet suits (some strangely in a 'cavalier' style!) with the stiff or huge white collars, and the girls look shy wearing their Sunday dresses with the added pinnies.
One wonders, where are they or their ancestors now?!
