Black & white photograph of  James Galbraith (seated with beard) and family outside his thatched house at Balevullin in around 1890. Standing – daughter Janet Galbraith (later MacDonald, Kilmoluaig); seated – daughter Sarah Donald (nee Galbraith) with baby Dorothy on her lap, and her other children Charlie, Jessie and Margaret. Sarah and her family lived in Glasgow and were probably paying a summer visit.
