Some background to this photograph.
Janet MacKay was married to Alexander Stewart Banks who was a blacksmith in Stromness. Their son, also Alexander Stewart Banks (grandfather) was I believe a policeman before moving to the Midlands where he became a draper.
This photo is taken either at the Ring of Brodgar or the Standing Stones. I think this must have been around the time my great grandfather died (1938). Janet & Alexander (gg-parents) are buried in Warbeth along with a son who died in infancy.
Alexander (gfather) had a sister Maggie Fiddler who lived and taught on Stronsay. There is also a brother who is buried in Warbeth along with his wife.

A couple of corrections! Frank is Banks not Fiddler.
Jessie is also Banks but not related..

Caroline Fotheringhame nee Fiddler now lives in Stromness. Her late mother was Maggie Banks who did indeed teach in Stronsay. She was married to Johnno Fiddler.

Alexander Stewart Banks, 1864-1938 would have been my first cousin, 4x removed.
