Bathers on Marine Terrace - c1969

This family group shows the shore at Marine Terrace before the current railings were added. More interestingly, it also shows the front building of the old factory or rope works which was demolished a few years later.

I remember the old factory buildings where once my grandparents lived, after moving from Allerton farm. Their name was Beattie.

I too played in the factory buildings when staying with my grandparents. I was born on Allerton Farm in 1945 then moved to Dundee but visited every year to stay with grandparents. They were very happy days; my friend then was Marjory McIntosh who used to stay in Shoremills then Church St, Cromarty.

I remember Tom. He gave me Piano lessons in the early 1970s. Both Tom and Jean made you feel at home - a very nice family.

I am the wee boy with the red trunks who in years later had great fun in Cromarty and was known as Tam.

Tam, I've always wondered what happened to you! It would be great to catch up. How's Gillian?
Added by Jess Alexander (nee Gunn) on 15 March 2010
Jess - I'm Tam's Auntie Jan and I'll pass your message on to him. Meanwhile, Tam (or Tony as the family now call him) is married to Liz and they have two sons, Daniel and Owen. Gillian is also married, to John Wilkie and they have twin boys, Charles and Vincent. I'll pass on your message and I expect you'll hear from them soon. Best wishes, Jan
