2019.103.1

Large black & white studio photograph of an unidentified young woman in around the late 1800s.

The portrait was donated by the aunt (by marriage) of Denis Garnham, who came to Tiree in the late 1950s to work on OS surveys, and then at the bank. The portrait hung in a Nissan hut at Balinoe in which Denis lived while on Tiree, and he took it with him when he left the island. Denis referred to the picture as “the little old lady of Balinoe”, and he took it all over Scotland with him.

We have tried to find out who she is and why she meant so much to Denis, but these remain a mystery. If you have any ideas, we would love to hear from you.

The photograph was originally mounted on canvas in a large ornate wood and gilt frame, which had to be removed due to its poor condition.
