Married Women's Race, Tain 1949 Carnival

This wonderful action photo shows Mrs Jessie Mackay just pipping Mrs Sybil Findlay in the Married Women's Race, part of the Carnival activities on the Links in 1949. How many of their modern counterparts could manage to look so athletic and perform in such cumbersome clothing?
