From Brian Mottershead
Pembroke, Ontario, Canada
Have enjoyed your collection of older pictures on the website. My
brother and I were perusing them last week and were surprised that we
knew several people. We both went to Calder High School 1951 to 1956.
I have lived in Canada since '56 and my brother now lives in
California. So, thought you might be interested in this picture taken
at Calder High about 1952 or 53. The cast of a school play, which as
I recall wasn't very good, even though I was in it! I know names of
about half the people and would be interested in hearing from anyone
who recognizes him or herself.
