Black & white photograph of Quentin M Henderson and his wife Mary Ann (Marianne) Henderson, with a cat and a dog, at Earnal in July 1929. The tin shed they are leaning against may be the one that Quentin built. It was then owned by Archie Livingstone, a plumber from Tobermory, and was later dismantled and sold to the father of Mona MacLean in Scarinish [possibly becoming the shop there].
