Middle joiner is William Henderson, born 1880 in Glenbuchat, died 1959 in Aberdeen.
He is my Uncle, and son of John Henderson and Jane Murdoch.

Worth noting the Square and Compassses in the middle window. I remember walking down the Crags from Beltimb to Jim Davidson's shop, in the late 60s. It still had a hand cranked petrol pump. He also owned the shop at Bellabeg, which is still trading and had a van that went round the glens delivering groceries and all sorts, at a time when not everyone had a car. He sold the shop, moving to Alford and continued with a picture framing business till he retired. Happy Days!

The joiner on the left was identified as a Mcgregor from Upperton, possibly James Glennie Mcgregor 1888 - 1920? See entry no. 969. This would make him 19 years old when this photo was taken in 1907.

Correction to above. It should read;- The joiner on the right...
