Masters in 1968 by Dave Potter

Masters at the Boys' School in the 1960s

We are grateful to OC David Potter (1962-1970) for this rare video footage of Boys' School Teachers from the 1960s.

David says:
"The movie and stills come from some 8mm cine footage shot by me using an electric Eumig camera from the Library window overlooking the dining hall/science block entrance during lunchtime, apart from one shot of Dougie Honer at the Parish Church. I must have been in the lower 6th at the time, having unrestricted access to the library, and the timescale is therefore probably sometime in the first half of 1968".

From a copyright point of view, David is happy to allow the video to be viewed for any personal use.If there is any commercial interest, please contact us and we'll put you in touch with David
