Would the fellow with the pipe be Jock Mackenzie? - Zillah's father. Jimmy Mackay back right, my old sparring partner.

Dan Shaw, ??, Jock MacKenzie (Jock the Fiddler), Hamish Askew, Jimmy MacKay, ??. I think perhaps that 1950 is a little early for this one.

The man front right is my grandfather, Tom MacKenzie from Saltburn. He conducted a Shoe Makers business in Saltburn from 1920 - 1937 and then joined Invergordon Post Office as a telephonist and postman retiring in 1958.

Tom MacKenzie was a member of the Invergordon Yacht Club and a keen dinghy sailor. He was known by us as "Tommy the Post". He was a very kind and sociable man.

Hi Gordie, thanks for confirming that it is indeed Jock Mackenzie. Yes he was a good fiddler and he used to teach the fiddle in room 15 of the old Academy.

Possibly after 1950, but before 1954/55 when Jock Mackenzie moved to Inverness.
