Rev. Walter Scott and his wife "Polly" in Forsyth House gardens.
At this time Forsyth House was the manse for the West Church. While this photo has the date 1907 on it another, which seems to come from the same time has "1914?" on the back.
The Scotts owned Rosenberg at that time, and it seems they spent the year between there and Forsyth House. Rosenberg had been inherited from the famous Dr. William Brydon by his son Hector, but Hector finally felt it was too much for him and handed it over to his sister "Polly".
Hector spent his last few years as a boarder with my grandparents at York House. My mother remembered a huge man with a cape and a massive hat. I think he may have been huge just in the eyes of a 4-year old, as his father was a short man.
