The water tank was where the present back entrance to school is - there were no council houses then at 21, 22, 23 and 24.  To the right of the water tank is the smelly toilets - I will never forget the smell - no domestos in those days.  The houses in the background are Taigh Alig Ceit and Taigh Twist - nos 11 and 12.  Photo was taken in what was the playpark.

Thanks to Chrissie Smith, Ness (formerly Christina Morrison, Glen View, Park) for providing the date and names for this picture.
