The man in the derby is my grandfather, Robert Gordon. He and my grandmother, Margaret, emigrated from Dornoch where they worked for Andrew Carnegie at Skibo castle. I don't know the other two men.

This is definitely Robert Gordon on the right. However, I have no idea who the other two men are. Robert was married in 1912 and then his three sons and one daughter were born. The Hollow Tree is still a tourist attraction in Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C.

Many thanks for your comment and additional information - Administrator
