Monochrome photograph of the station goods yard with a Highland Railways locomotive at the entrance of the engine shed and a Caledonian Railway wagon in front of it. In the foreground there is a line of coal wagons. At the end of the station platform there is a group of three children and a Beechams Pills advertisement.

Great, what was the shed on the right used for?

I can see the three children at the end of the platform but I cannot make out the top advertisement but it could be showing a medicine bottle. However, the bottom one appears to be for Buchanan's Black and White Scotch whisky. Incidently Buchanan's Black and White is the best selling Scotch whisky in South Africa at this time and sells for Rand 86.00 for 750ml. This is about BPS 7.15 at the current rate of exchange.
