Ladies of Cromarty - c1939

Date Added: 18 November 2003 Contributor: Johnny Gray Year: 1939 Picture No: 570

The year is a guess. The text on this cutting says "These ladies did praiseworthy work at Cromarty regatta selling flags for the lifeboat fund."

Any idea who they are and when the pic was taken?

Centre right is my late aunt, Betty Fraser, who lived at 10 High Street. She had an academic career and was the first woman professor in the history of Aberdeen University, where she was Head of the Psychology Department for many years. Comment left on 11 June 2005 at 22:10 by Alan Fraser
