Are you any relation to the people in the photo? The lady in black will be my great grandmother, and possibly one my Grandmother?, and the other my Grand aunt

Mislabeled or unidentified?

Still trying to sort out details here.I found through conversation that Ann Mathieson (Margaret's sister) married a David Sinclair..so is this a picture of Ann and daughters (I only have that she had one) or did Margaret also marry a Sinclair..(I have no information on her marriages or children)

can anyone help?

no, I am not directly related..my great Aunt was married to James Mathieson, and these are some of his older photos from a stored box....I scanned them about 5 years ago and have been meaning to see if there is further information out there about the people in them.
