Photo Description

The sign above the doorway of these premises at the corner of Geanies and Stafford Street says Saddlery Department. Note the horse collars on either side of the door, the beautiful horse carriages, the post box in the wall and the water hydrant in the middle of the pavement. This building still exists but is much changed in appearance with much larger window spaces. It was a tyre centre in recent times and is currently a household supplies shop.

    Does anyone know the history of this John Fraser? I'm descended from a Fraser family in Tain, but the John was born 1821. Might this be a son? (The patriarch was James Fraser, born Tain 1797)
