The date is way out if that is Walter Couper sitting on the box. It could be his older brother. It was taken about 1915.

Those Coupers spring up everywhere! Comment left on 13 April 2014 at 21:03 by Ranald Nicolson Matheson
I think my identifications of 5 years ago are wrong. The lady seems to be the aunt of the two children, Isobella Couper. She was the older sister of James Couper (my grandfather) who owned the bakers shop they are standing in front of. The boy on the box is Jim Couper, born 1905, died in 1910, the girl is Annie Couper. I would guess the date to be about 1908. Comment left on 22 December 2017 at 12:54 by Ross Couper
