The Thomson Children c.1910

I believe this picture shows my grandfather William Thomson together with his brother and three sisters probably taken around 1910. From left to right they are Mary (May); William; Janet (Jenny); Jane (Jean); James. Their parents Alexander and Mary Thomson ran the Railway Hotel from 1908 until 1927 having previously run the Masons Arms in Dingwall. Alexander died in 1909 after which Mary , assisted by her sister Annie Cowper ran the hotel until she retired to Glasgow. May was Dux of Tain Royal Academy in 1922 however she died whilst still a student at Edinburgh University in 1924.
