The woman named as Mrs Skinner in the back row looks very like my grandmother Margaret Matheson. Is it possible you have made a mistake?

I agree it is not Mrs Skinner it could even be my mum Moullie Christie but I think it is more likely to Margaret but I didn't know her

My maternal grandparents William and Euphemia Fraser lived and worked on Culisse Farm. In the late 1950s I spent the summer holidays with them and played with some of the children in the photo. The names Margaret and Jim Fraser, and Patrick Swanson sound familiar.
