Rupert Neil on the Harbour - c1950

Rupert was a local character - he could remember attending the 'Wet Review' in Edinburgh, which was the celebration of Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1881, and was the local window cleaner charging 6d at the time of this picture.

Douglas, Thank you for submitting this fine photo of Rupert. In spite of his lifestyle, fondness for a tipple etc., he was a real 'worthy'. My memories of him were of his very smart 'marching' step when moving about the town. He stayed in a house to the rear of Murdo Gilmour, on a lane leading to Jock the Trapper's back yard.
