    This is a fabulous collection. Important to archive with with information. SS I will speak to you. OCA- please could you provide me emails of living Cottonians in school between 1950-1960.

    Many of us are little mites in some of the photos. Anil, I think I see you in one. I know I can recognise the Nat brothers, HS Kahlon, and indeed even one of myself – taken after sports day!! I agree Vijay – what a fabulous collection.

    A flood of memories – an extraordinary collection maintained by Gurmeet. Loved it. Thank you Sukhminder for sharing it.

    What a fabulous collection. Wish we could name and date these pictures.

    It is almost surreal because you now look at yourself as part of history when it seemed like just another photography session on that particular day. The age and history of these pictures lend a new meaning.

    When I see Gurmeet, Naaz, Preppy or Mr Williams or Freddy Brown, I can almost hear their voices!!
