This photo must have been taken on the same day as the picture #909 and picture #991 as the window cords on the two outer windows are in the same position and also the reflections in the glass of the windows are similar.

Catherine Mackay, Christine Cumming (nee Fraser) and Grace Jane Cumming were from Embo. James Grant (Jima),Willie Cumming (William Mackay Cumming)and Donald Ross were also from Embo.

In later life Willie Cumming and Christina Fraser married and moved to Dornoch. James Grant studied and worked as an engineer in the Glasgow shipyards in the 1950s and later spent several years at sea as a ship's engineer sailing between the UK and Bombay, India. Sadly he died relatively young.

Donald Ross was the son of the Embo Post Office Owner.
