Top of High Street, Invergordon

A black and white postcard entitled 'Invergordon' but is a view taken from the area of the house 'Ardnamara', Seabank Road, showing the gable end of 'Kimberley Cottage, High Street with the corner wall of 'Oakes Villa' across the road. Old maps incidentally show 'Kimberley Cottage' as being a Police Station. The empty site in the foreground once a quarry hole was later occupied by the buildings of Taylors Garage and later Frews. Things have come round as it is once again a vacant site. The masts of a sailing ship can be seen in the harbour area. The authors name cannot be made out by was addressed to someone at 12 Albert Street, Aberdeen. It is franked Banff on June 28 1909.

What a lovely scene. There are obvious changes, but it is still recognised. I didn't know that the Police Station had been anywhere other than its current site.

An old map of the town dated 1880 is available on old-maps.co.uk and show the building as a Police Station. The quality is none too good and there is not a huge amount of detail in terms of places etc but worth a look re general interest.

Thanks for that Graeme. I found it quite interesting. Any idea what the big chimney is from?
