When cleaning up this pic we saw what looks to be a notice board on the Girnal wall. As Dave said, "if this was Hollywood you'd ask me if I could get a little closer and after a few seconds we'd be reading the notices and checking them for fingerprints".

After using the enlarged version of this inner harbour photograph, I'm convinced the boat alongside
the basin below the Custom's Sheddie, is the first Cromarty Lifeboat ''BROTHERS''. Cromartyfied
this gave rise to my Grandfather's by-name, in the fishertown he was known as ''Bodders''.
