2 High St - 1919

The front of Bain's shop on the corner of Church St and Forsyth Place.
Picture added on 18 December 2003
The man in the centre would seem to be the shopkeeper himself given the resemblance to John Bain in picture #589.

2 High Street is the address of what is now Gardiner & Gardiner antiques shop on the opposite corner!

I believe John Bain lived at 1 Forsyth Place, above his shop which is now a pantry?

My copy of this has "2 High Street Cromarty Circa 1890" written on it, in unknown handwriting. I too think it might be the antiques shop, despite the facade being very different now. The side window and the not-quite-right-angle of the corner suggest this, but a close look at the present stonework would decide it. The man does look very like John Bain though.
