"I was able to dismantle this frame, without
damage. In the picture above, you can see the frame structure. As
you see the oval metal surround has marked the photo but it cleans up well in
The McRitchie Family
"The subject is my great-grandmother, Ann Elizabeth
Gawn of Granton (1842-1907). She married John McRitchie in 1862. The
McRitchies were ferrymen and innkeepers in North Queensferry for centuries.
