Alec Cameron (Shoemaker) with Donald Ross outside the shoemaker's shop at 9 High Street. I think the wee boy may be Harold Cameron. Probably around 1935.

When I went to the Primary in the wee schoolie, Alec was the janitor, and I remember him coming in with a bucket of sand when one of the children had been sick all over the floor boards.

My granny Mary told me that Alec had a broken clock in his workshop. The sign under it read, " No tick here!"

I knew some of the family, Elgra, Hermy and Harold.
They lived later at Lochaber on the Braehead...where I used to deliver their newspaper.
Harold is also on one of the Avoch football team photos,if you cannot find it let me know......

My father, Bob Yeoman, bought this house after WW2. He rebuilt it into one house of only two stories, known as 'Dunollie' with the workshop becoming the sitting room. It was sold on after his death in 1995 when my mother moved in to Gowans Place.
