A word from Murd about the Ballerina

Hi folks, have spoken to my brother who is in his eighties and lived in Nairn until the outbreak of the war. His knowledge and memory of the area are still very good but has no recollection of the Figure head above the what was the Public Hall but thinks it looks like SHAKESPEARE ?
The public hall was owned by the McRae's when I was a boy and was a dance hall. Some of the band members were Sandy Williamson [SAX] Drogue McRae also [SAX] Jimmy Bochel [drums] Also playing were Vicky Ellen Gus Miller and if I recall right the band name was the MONOTONES
