This was taken outside the Picture House, Invergordon. The Year is not known - can anyone help? Left is Carol Beavis with Jeanette Geddes.

Hello Arthur, The LP being shown in the picture is the first Rolling Stones album (I have a copy of it!).
I notice it also appears in picture #807 - Morris is holding it on his lap. The record came out in 1964 so your pic can be no earlier than that. I have spoken to my sister but she has no recollection of this shot being taken. Between us we reckon it is late 1964 or early 1965.

As a fully paid up member of the Stones Fan Club at the time I can confirm that the album was released in April 1964. I have spoken to Jeanette on the phone and she can't remember the photo being taken but she does remember ordering the LP from Roddy MacKenzie's (Electric Shop). I lived in the house between the Rhu Hotel and the old Post Office (57 High Street, known as 'Varadero'). I first got to know Jeanette when her Dad ran the bakery (part of the Rhu Hotel) next door to us. I later worked with her at the Smelter. I wonder which film was showing at the pictures when the photo was taken!

The film on show looks like '55 Days in Peking' made in 1963.

Hello Arthur, Morris took this and the other photos of us girls in 1965 - I think he may have had a new camera as I seem to have a few photos of us all too.
Please say Hello to Jeanette for me Bill and hello also to Keith V.

I was thrilled to come across this photo of the beautiful young Carol Beavis, exactly as I remember her. I met her around the time this photo was taken, when I travelled to Scotland from my then home town of Birmingham. We started a little teenage romance and kept in touch for a while by phone calls to phone boxes at pre-agreed times. Distance eventually did for us though. I am 72 now (2019), married and living in Sheffield, but I would love to say (an innocent, old time sakes) hello to Carol if she is still in Invergordon.
