    I believe the lady on the right of the photo to be Mrs Connie Morrison, wife of the late Alex Morrison, mother of Fraser and Gordon. I was born at number 11, Feb 1st 1951. My father was the accountant at the North of Scotland, Clydesdale Bank from the late 40s until 1966. He was a well known local figure and introduced cricket to a generation of youngsters through his involvement with Tain St Duthus CC for 20 years. He was the treasuer to the ploughing association for as many years. Our family moved to Forres in 1966 when my father became manager of the local Clydesdale Bank.
