Lucky to have such an interesting old family photograph. Who are the passengers and are there other Baikie family photographs on-line? All the more interesting as my mother's family married into a branch of the Baikie-Bruce-Mitchells in 1890.

While not directly related to my Leask research, have added this photo as it gives an indication of how people travelled.
