Walter Denoon & William Smith - c1925

Picture added on 20 November 2003
Walter Neil Denoon is the gentleman on the right of the picture .... probably taken during one of his many holiday visits to Cromarty. Walter was the brother of my grandfather ( their father being Walter Ross Denoon, born in 1832 at Cromarty ) . At some time Walter Neil was a member of the Robertson Lodge Cromarty Freemasons...... Thanks to Helen and Bobby for getting the original title of the picture corrected.

Photo location seems to be The Falls of Rogie, just off the Strathpeffer/Ullapool road. Willie J.Smith was an excellent amateur glass plate photographer, some of his material was used in an early Highland Fabricators journal supplement. If the present owner of those plates is reading this comment, I think now is the time to publish, as they would add a great deal to our early understanding of the Cromarty way of life (late 1800's to mid 1920's)

Just come across this photo whilst browsing through the library. Would anyone know if this is the same William J Smith who lived in Duke St and who was President of the Scottish Clans Association of London during the 1920s? I have his photo in full Highland Dress taken at a complimentary dinner in his honour in 1928 but not sure if it"s the same person or not.
