The girl top right is Abbe Hives, sister of
Margaret Hives on the top left. The family
had two other sisters namely Elisa & Jenny.
All had beautiful red/auburn hair.
During the WW2 Years their Mother ran their
'side show' business from the ground floor of the
Factory building block, which in the 1980's was
converted for housing.

Jenny Hives runs THE COMMERCIAL BAR in the High Street in DINGWALL, I noticed that it's closed just now due to illness. My mother was in school with Jenny and her family, I hope that Jenny is not too ill and also hope she gets better soon. She has a wee terrier for company he will be wondering whats happening as the two would be out and about every day.

This is a photo of the Cromarty Top Ten and Miss Cromarty. In 1947 there was a competition throughout Scotland called The Top Tens. A dance was held in the Victoria Hall and 4 judges were there to choose Miss Cromarty. The winner was Irene Mackenzie, the Police sergeant’s daughter. Irene now lives in Ratho and we are in touch due to her great friendship with my mother, Babs.
