Rory Toe

This postcard was posted from Inverness on Oct. 3rd, 1912, to a Miss Lily Mackenzie, Dudley Castle, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. It shows Rory Macdonald known as "Rory Toe". He was a newsvendor and Town Crier in Tain. He always wore a beret, jacket, kilt and large boots - the latter to accommodate his misshapen feet.
