This photo appears to be about the same time as picture #152, 1901. Somewhere in Kirkwall. Anyone know the faces?

Yes. This is the family of my great-grandfather John Dearness (1843-1921). His wife Margaret Hutchison is sitting in the centre surrounded by their children. I believe it was taken about 1910 - possibly in connection with the Coronation of George V. Don't know how this got here though - though I had the only copy!

Hi Bill,

Can you please confirm if one of the children from Margaret was Fanny Spence Dearness.

I believe that this is a photo of my great great grandmother .... my mothers name was Margaret Hutchison Dodds and my grandmothers name was Fanny Dearness who married William Bruce Dodds in 1903
