This is a picture of my grandfather, Andrew Finlayson of 7 Shore St. His nickname was "Pinder" because at a very young age the Pinder-Orde Circus came to Cromarty and he announced that he was going to run away and join the circus. My mother was Isabelle McLeman Finlayson. Comment left on 24 June 2005 at 17:47 by Louise Bradley

My name is Ian Roberts and I also find this picture interesting. I have commented on a picture of Andrew's wife, Isabella "Bella Dhu" Finlayson (MacLeman). Andrew "Pinder" Finlayson is my great-great-grandfather. Isabella Colledge (his daughter) is my great-grandmother. Louise Bradley, who has also commented on this picture is my great-aunt and Isabella Colledge's daughter. Louise's sister is my grandmother, Anne Virgin. It is always interesting to continue to read the comments on pictures on this site. Comment left on 25 June 2005 at 19:35 by Ian Roberts

They are my Great-grand-parents, their son, Donald Alexander Finlayson married Muriel Coulter Armstrong, and had Donald and Ian Finlayson. I had wondered why he was called 'Pinder'. Comment left on 26 October 2005 at 22:49 by Catherine Finlayson
