This picture shows a group of Austin cars outside the St Duthus Hotel. It probably dates back to the 1930`s or `40`s.

Second from Left is a Morris Eight. I had a Tourer model when I was in school and used to run it in the field at Cullisse where I was brought up. The one on the Right I think is a Riley or Rover. I do not think any of them are actually Austin. Anyone further identify?

My father Andrew Gardiner chemist had a Morris Eight exactly like the one in this picture. I can vaguely remember being snuggily wrapped up on the back seat in a travelling rug with a hot water bottle to keep me warm on my return journey from Invergordon Hospital to The Poplars Tain circa 1952.
