Carpenters A. Moir
Picture added on 17 April 2004
There was Mr Moir carpenter and undertaker in the High Street in the 50's. He had a speech impediment. Could he be the boy leaning on the trestle?

I agree this could be Hughie Moir, the little boy in picture..Hughie had a hare lip, but he never took any lip..remember him well...

Yes, Hughie Moir did have a speech impediment. My parents George and Ena Young used to take us to visit Hughie and his sister Annie when I was small. We also used to go to the Invergordon Games, then go to their house afterwards for our tea.

My uncle Iain Askew was a joiner and I used to be sent to Moirs for bits and pieces that he needed. I remember the lovely smell of wood when you walked in; I could never understand Hughie but remember Kenny and Sandy? I remember they had a dog just like the one in the picture and Hughie used to stand at the corner of the house on the High Street. Speaking of standing on the High Street does anyone remember Leebie Denoon who lived between Thomsons shop and Mrs AW Ross? He was always at his door.

In researching family history have discovered that my grandfather John Menzies was born in Alness and his father Hector was born in Rosskeen and was a ploughman at Rosskeen farm. My grandfather's sister, Isabella, married Donald Moir in 1892. Davie's brother Donald was in the army c1945 when we travelled up to Invergordon at the end of the war. Appreciate any possible info on the families and also on the Aird's. Great grandfather Hector married Anne Aird in 1861 and I know there was a connection to Cromarty, possibly Nigg.
