A FORMER Helensburgh woman who now lives in Shetland is trying to find out more about her family history through this photograph.

Cathy Shearer thinks that her mother told her that the photo was taken at Cardross School in the late 1890s.

She believes that her grandfather, Robert Colquhoun, who was born at Auchensail Farm in 1884, is standing in the back row, second from the left.

“I would like to find out the date the photo was taken, and confirm whether or not it was taken at Cardross School,” she said. “I'm also curious why one of the men is wearing an army uniform.”

The photograph was taken and mounted by M.Pearlman & Co., of Glasgow, Paisley and Rothesay.
