Fishertown cottages

Shows the edge of what is now Moonfleet (Robert Hogg's house), and the the original frontage of the cottage renovated extensively in 1996(?). At this time it was inhabited by the Finlayson family.

Moonfleet at this time was clearly a sandstone structure with a wooden porch. It was renovated very soon afterwards, as the roof had fallen in.

The building beyond the Finlayson's was inhabited by Mrs Bathie. Every morning she used to feed a particular gull which landed near her doorstep and would eat from her hand.

I am a grandaughter of John & Ethel Finlayson. What a joy to see this photo, it brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye. Thank you, Alison.
