At one time, girls had to wear gymslips
- people realise that items of clothing become less fashionable, and uniforms have to bear some resemblance to the apparel they wear in everyday life.
This year the youngsters parading plukes, smug smiles and swollen gymslips
are Thomas Weldon, 14 and Tina McCartney, 16, from Port Glasgow.

Joan can remember very few names, but the girls on the front row in gymslips
are Gwen and Peggy Wimpenny, of the famous Milnsbridge building firm of the same name.
Many of the girls wear gymslips
, some have ties and there are even lace collars and striped blouses.
