Photo Description

A sepia photo by William Smith, Photographer, Tain, of the interior of the workshop, in Upper King Street, of a skilled cabinet maker called Danny Thompson. Thompson did all the wood work when Morangie House was built for the Gallies in 1903 and presented them with a carved wooden chair, similar to the one in the picture, as handsel or moving in present. On the left of the picture is W Fraser (father of Donald) who later bought the business.

    The business of D Thomson & Co. (Danny Thomson) was bought from W Fraser in 1945 by my father Russell J Anderson. I served my time as an apprentice upholsterer in this workshop.
