Photograph of a gathering on Coll before 1913

Sepia postcard photograph of an outdoor gathering of well-dressed adults and children watching a piper, thought to be on the Isle of Coll before 1913. The reverse side of the postcard is stamped Nov. 1913, and was written at the Coll Post Office by Mary Clement to her mother in Port Appin. When the family lived on Coll, Mary`s brother, Jim, had the longest long-jump on the island, which was marked out for many years. He was a member of the Territorial Army and served in WWI.
