Quebec Bridge

The mason responsible for this bridge was a Mr Mackenzie.
We are not certain how the bridge got its name, although there is a suggestion that (a) citizen(s) of Tain may have fought with General Wolfe in Canada.
There is also a Quebec Cottage, and a comment in the catalogue states that Mr Ross of Moorfarm was known as `Old Quebec`.

The Mackenzie who built this bridge was a Bailie William Mackenzie. He was a road contractor and bridge builder in Tain and was responsible for the construction of many of the roads and bridges in Easter Ross. He was also a Magistrate for many years. William Mackenzie was a great uncle of WJMunro (Town Clerk of Tain) and WJ was Rosemary Mackenzie's father.
