    Sorry, most of the pictures of people i have no idea who they are,
    the School Pictures i think is possibly Bilbster or Sibster schools.

    Anyway, that's all i have for now.


    ps i may have uploaded a few pictures twice, sorry.

    Your photos were well worth the wait. Some fantastic old ones of Wick and the countryside. Well done!

    here are some names i found on another similar picture.

    Back Row ~ James Wares, Sandy Munro, John Swanson, Ian Allan, Harry Taylor, James Henderson, Ian Banks, Neil Miller, James Sutherland, Sandy Henderson, Jimmy Sinclair, Sandy Miller.
    3rd Row ~ Rex Watt, Kinser MacDonald, Joyce Banks, Betty Sutherland, Ella Munro, Bertha Geddes, Katie Watt, Ellen Munro, Bella Wares, ( ? ), Elsie Henderson, Donny Munro, Peter Macdonald.
    2nd Row ~ Isa Miller, Bettie Lockie, Margaret Miller, Nellie Lockie, Effie Munro, Bunty Bruce, ( ? ), Anne Cumming.

    They all appear to be coming through now - many thanks.
    What wonderful pictures. I think Torvaig is right about Bill Mowat, Lybster and Draper shop in Wick. His wife was Aileen Mowat who started the Wick Arion Choir. A daughter I think an actress ?

    Many thanks,
    Trinkie

    I wonder if this was anything to do with the Stirkoke rifle club as the man with the bonnet behind Bill Mowat looks awfully like my uncle - Willie Steven. Does anybody think that the man in the middle front with the dark jacket may look a bit like George Dunnet? Maybe this man is his father.

    I love these photos.

    Highland Laddie, these photos are great, thank you so much for posting them.

    Another lovely photo.

    All these pictures are great. I love browsing them, and the ones of Thurso. They give a real sense of what Caithness is all about - community. Keep posting them.
