A picture of my father Daniel (left) I'd guess from the early/mid 50's. Don't know who the other chap is so if anybody can enlighten me I'd appreciate it.

Interesting sweater your dad was wearing Andrew - is there a story behind that?

Garve, apparently somebody knitted it for him (as was the norm back then) but there's no significance as far as he is aware. I was more taken by the boots and the hair!

I think the young gent sitting alongside Daniel, is one David Taylor, who used to stay in Burnside Cottage, just opposite the former brewery (now a lecture and concert venue). David's father worked in Fortrose in an Ironmonger's shop.

Not David Taylor. He would have been about 20/21 in 1953. My parents, Sam and Betty Hossack nee Taylor and I lived in Aberdeen, at Girdleness Lighthouse. David came to work in Aberdeen after doing National Service.

I'd guess the other fellow is a Finlayson, he looks an awful lot like my brother, Stephen Finlayson, my dad Donald Coulter Finlayson, and my grandfather Donald Alexander Finlayson.

I am quite sure this is Bert Shepherd, a relative of mine.
