Date Added: 21 July 2003 Contributor: Stephen Thomson Year: 1940 Picture No: 401

Close-Up of the ceremony in front of the Courthouse. Don't know what the ceremonmy is about yet. Also not sure about date. See picture #400.

I'm not aware of the Ceremony either, but identify the the man holding 'the scroll' as Mr Fraser
the Manager former Bank of Scotland, and with the 'lum' hat Rev. G.K. Jenkins, the late Col. G.D. N.
Ross seems to be having Police protection over a heated discussion, with a disgruntled local? It may
be an Election announcement. I would guess the date somewhere between 1948/52.

The photo - and picture #400 - looks like it was taken from an upstairs window - perhaps from Alastair's Cottage?
