No luck with Cathcart Street School - there must be photos of it out there somewhere - but I have managed to find some of Marion Street/Camden Street, admittedly only from the mid-70s, but they're better than nothing...

LOL, digital still has some way to go before it matches the best of film, and I doubt it will ever match 10" by 8" glass plates.
