No problem picking out Helen. Where was the picture taken?
Added by Harry O'Neill on 28 January 2010
I think it may have been Helen's garden when she lived in Clyde Street. I am always amazed when I read your comments, you have such recall re past memories of Invergordon. I have told Helen that I have at last got around to adding the photo to the library.

Hi Janet, yes I still have vivid memories of Invergordon and events there, probably because I think I covered every inch of it as a child. I hope someone can identify others in this picture.

Brian Proudfoot had an elder brother Robert (Bobby). I have no recollection of a younger brother named Leslie Proudfoot. Brian appears in picture #1193.

Yes you are correct, I don't know where I got the name Leslie. Now I don't know who the boy is next to Helen. Murdo Fraser is also in the picture. At school I was often seated next to your brother Martin.

Back row l to r - Cameron MacLennan,Billy Maclennan and Rosie Anderson.
Middle row - Brian Proudfoot, Murdo Mackenzie and Murdo Fraser.
Front row - Leslie Fraser, Helen Ross, Esther Mackenzie (Murdo's sister) and Janette Graham.
The photo was taken outside the house of BaBa and Margaret Maclean at 28/30 Clyde Street, the house now occupied by Donald the Butcher. I think it was Margaret's birthday party. Janet MacPherson is the "outsider" with the box.

Hi Jackie, I am just interested to know if you are related by marriage to Audrey Geddes.
Added by Janet Shoosmith nee Macpherson on 23 February 2010
Hi Janet. No, I'm not related to Audrey.

Hi Janet, thanks for this photo. It is great to see members of my family from a "few" years ago. Helen, you are genius for knowing the names of them all. I am really pleased about that. Thanks.
