I believe this baby is Violet, born 2nd June 1907. The lady, I believe is her paternal grandmother,Isabella, born Stronsay abt 1842. Isabella and her late husband (also from Orkney), occupation Mason, were resident in Edinburgh
where their son (also Edward), occupation Brassfinisher, was born and resided. Research is ongoing - but given Violet`s middle name, I have a hunch that Isabella`s maiden name was Maxwell will get back to you.

Isabella`s parents were in fact John Maxwell and Isabella Brock,(Stronsay) who were my great, great grandparents. She died at the ripe old age of 86 in Edinburgh.
