Sorry for any confusion caused by the heading, the only two people I know in the photo, are my aunt, Betsy McLeman nee Skinner and Ann Skinner, if anyone knows any of the others please let me know.

I think this may be something to do with the Jack family of "Kilmorack" Avoch, known in Avoch as "The Coffee House". Ann Skinner worked there as a tailoress. Second from left in back row is Mrs Mann (nee Jack) with her husband Alec beside her. The old couple in centre of front may be Mr and Mrs Danny Jack with Danny's brother Fachie at end of same row. Sandy Smith their nephew is in middle of back row and I think that is George M Jack (Tyrie) behind Betsy Skinner. The woman standing behind Ann Skinner may be Annie Jack, sister of Danny, Fachie, Mrs Mann, Mrs Smith and Tyrie.

Thanks very much Grace for the information, I didn't know that Ann was a tailoress, I only knew that both she and Agnes had worked in the fish shop. Knew a few of the faces but not their names.
