Snakes and Ladders
Here is a photograph from the blog of The Hebridean Archive Service and it comes with an appeal. The house and family were 'snapped' on Eriskay in 1911, but who are they? Answers, 102 years after developing, will be appreciated. The family of Donald MacLean of Bragar (below) was photographed at some time between 1910 and 1920 by Dr Norman Morrison of Shawcross. He was a polymath, a police officer and one of those people who gained his doctorate in retirement. One of his passions was the board game, 'Snakes and Ladders', on which he wrote books and articles. Any copies out there?
