Is the butcher called Donald Mackenzie? I seem to remember he inherited a share in Mackenzie Bros the Butchers (See picture #763) in the late 50s and lived over the shop, but as a joiner to trade he was remembered more for his alterations to the shop than for his butchery skills.

Yes Roddy, you are right, it is Donald MacKenzie and his wife Mary.

Donald MacKenzie is my grandad and is still completely recognisable from this picture! He still lives in Invergordon and is a absolute star, probably the nicest man you will ever meet!

Jock Mitchell is holding my dolly Jean who I got from Santa. I've still got it but it's in the attic because it freaks out my daughters and grandchildren. She still has her duffle coat.
