This picture, possibly taken in the 1950s shows four well known Tain businessmen enjoying a relaxing game of cards. George Hamilton had a draper's busines, first in the High Street, then in King Street (where Brambles Coffee Shop is today). Hector ("Heckie") Ross was a grocer with a shop in King Street. Donald Strachan had the famous bakery and shop in the High Street. James Mackenzie worked in his father's carpentry business on Shore Road. His father was known as "Dan Heavy" and he was known as "Jimmy Light", reflecting their different physical make up. This image is from the collection of slides belonging to George Hamilton.
