Stop Google plus from auto adding people to my contacts. 

I have just found out that everyone I'm following in Google Plus is now on my Google Contact list. 

I hope I have stopped it, but now I must find out how to delete them all, anybody have any ideas?

This is an unidentified photo that I got from my Father, who got it from my Grandmother Pieteriza Cilliers van Ellewee. The photo is 6 1/2" x 4" and there is nothing written on the back.

My Grandmother was born in 1901 and grew up in the Clanwilliam, Namaqualand (Namakwaland), Vanrhynsdorp and Bakleiplaas (Farm) districts of the Cape Province, South-Africa. She went to school in the Wallenkraal district of Namaqualand (Namakwaland) and she also taught at private schools before she got married to my Grandfather Jan Harmse Nieuwoudt Smit.

Many of the children are holding flowers and it seems the photo was taken outside. The building behind looks as if it has a thatched roof.

On the back wall is written what looks like A III, in Roman numerals
School Mesklip (literally translated knife stone).

Mesklip is just outside Springbok in Namaqualand, South-Africa.
Namaqua Game Lodge are the registered owners of Mesklip.
Mesklipensis is a type of succulent plant.

I would appreciate any information about the photo.
