Jimmy Halliday shoeing an 8 year old Clydesdale in 1973

In response to our request for pictures of Nairnshire past and present Liz has sent in an image of her dad, Jimmy Halliday, shoeing an 8 year old Clydesdale in 1973 at Cawdor Smithy. Behind him is Raymond Munro his apprentice.

Liz says : "As you have a bit about Rosemarys' first job, my first job was when I was at Cawdor primary school and I used to pick raspberries. When I began at Nairn Academy I then worked every summer holiday at Cawdor Castle, on pitch and put, in the restaurant and in the cafe. Cawdor was a fantastic village to grow up as I loved the outdoors and walking our small border terrier cross Shandy"

It's been a busy day on the Gurn and there are other older pictures from Murd in a post below. Tomorrow another picture from out Cawdor way.

Fantastic archive pick. Is there a farrier left in Nairnshire?
