Russell family Shapinsay c 1900

Another of Edwin's photos, I am fairly sure this shows Magnus Russell, his maternal grandfather, who was a "merchant" in Shapinsay, with his children, one of whom will be Jeanie, Edwin's mother. I think it is probably the older girl on the right, she was born in 1882, so that would make this about 1900, or maybe a bit later. Can any of the Shapinsay folk say when he stopped this version of his mobile shop?

So much for my identifying him as Magnus Russell. I have several of Magnus Russell as an older man and had completly convinced myself this was the same person.
