Dorothy Watt was my grandpa's sister! Mrs Watt was their mother. Please could you tell me any more about this photograph? Comment left on 18 May 2016 at 21:43 by Alison Watt
My mother, front left, and Dorothy Watt were both part of a group of friends. My mother, herself an accomplished singer, always said that Dorothy was an excellent singer. High praise! The group of friends played tennis together and went for Sunday walks to Charlie's Seat, a promontory on the South Sutor.

If you put "Fyfe" into this site's search box, you will find a concert programme in which Dorothy and my mother were both soloists!
I don't know what the occasion for the photo could have been, but the older members of the group were all prominent people in Cromarty. You will find lots about Rosenberg on this site too.

Thank you very much, Ruth; that's fascinating! I know she was a beautiful singer and at one time was asked to go to Italy to work more on her voice. I have found some mentions of her in the local newspapers regarding concerts and theatrical gatherings. If you have any more information, I would love to know. Did your mother know Dorothy's husband, Sandy Reid? Also, a cousin by marriage, Jean Sinclair? I will have a look at the concert programme. Many thanks again, Ali Comment left on 01 June 2016 at 11:17 by Alison Watt
Hi Alison,
I'm sorry I can't tell you any more about Dorothy, and I don't remember my mother ever talking about the others you mention. However, I do, somewhere, have a photo of her and my mother together, and when I find it I'll put it on this site. Good luck with your researches!

Thank you once again, Ruth, and I look forward to seeing your photo. You have given me a lovely personal glimpse into the past! Comment left on 06 June 2016 at 22:31 by Alison Watt
Can somebody please tell me exactly what Rosenberg was? Cromarty had a women's Institute in 1927, could this have been a SWRI outing at the time? Comment left on 26 November 2020 by Phyllis Hannah
