Not the clearest of pictures, but what I like about it is the gear the school boys have which is of typical of the time. The omnipresent quilted blue anorak and the ubiquitous football team sports bag.
The photo was taken in Lochee on April 1970 when 4 teams from Charleston Celtic left Dundee to play games down South. 2 teams went to the Newcastle area and the other 2 travelled to Newmarket.
Feel free to click on the image to enlarge/download if you think you can identify anyone.

  1. This is a great photo -- brings back memories, but I can't be specific. But if any of these kids are from Charleston Primary school I probably knew them as I was attending Charleston Primary in April 1970. Wasn't Mr. Shilland involved in the football? He might be one of the teachers in the photo...THANKS for posting it!
