The Jarvie Sisters 1915

picture #14654 showed Mr Jarvie the school master at Pierowall. I believe he had seven daughters and this is a picture I found marked "the Jarvies". My grandfather was the schoolmaster at the Westside School in Westray and would have known Mr Jarvie. In fact they were the Captain and Treasurer of the Westray Golf Club at that time.

Comments:
My grandmother Alice Winter (nee Jarvie). Alice is on the far right of the photo. Alice married my grandfather, Harry Winter, an Australian solder serving in World War One. After Harry was demobbed after the war, he studied and exhibited paintings at the Royal College of Art in London, where Alice was working at the time. They fell in love and Alice moved to Adelaide, Australia as Harry's wife. Alice and Harry had five children together. Donald (my father), Frank, Bob, Alfred and Jean.
