About this recording

In More Precious Memories Ishbel McBoyle recalls, with amazing detail, her first term at Halkirk School. She not only captures the sounds and smells of the classroom but talks of the exploits in the playground too. She expresses the feelings she experienced as a child, particularly when she describes visits to the classroom by Mr Johnston the photographer and Mr Johnston the dentist, leaving her in her childhood innocence, to think, “That all visitors to the classroom had to be called Mr Johnston.”
