Margaret Mckay

I have found this old photo of Margaret Mckay in with my late mother's belongings. It originally belonged to my Nana, Elspet Mitchell who was a friend of Margaret. On the back of the photo it has her name as Margaret H McKay. The address 131 High Street, Invergordon and dated 1917 or 1919.
If anyone recognizes Margaret as their Nana or great-nan then I am more than happy to pass the photo on to them.
Hoping someone claims her!

Hi, do you know if she was a Nurse? or was her maiden name Weir? My great grandmother's sister was called "Nurse Mckay" but I don't know much else, they lived in Invergordon.

Hi Eddy, I am afraid I know nothing about this lady only that she was a friend of my nan. My nan and family lived in Invergordon as well so it's possible that this is your 'nurse Mckay'. If you think it is then I will definitely post the photo to you if you would like to have it.

Hi Val, I would like to have it, if you look at picture #1300, I think this is the girl on the right but a few years older(Nurse Mckay). My Gparents lived at 137 High Street from 1939. Could your 131 possibly be 137 at all?

Hi Eddy, I think she could be the same girl as the one in your photo, but I am sure the house number is 131....mind you if I stare at it long enough it does start to look like it could be 137!.. If you email me your address I will certainly post the photo to you.

They had a daughter Christina B Weir (my Grandmother) married a Gillies Sinclair, their daughter, Gillian Hawman (nee Sinclair), just died 8th November 2012, she was a lovely kind woman my mam.
