Photo information

Family portrait ordered by Campbell, Lybster, September 1911.

"This is Hugh Campbell, my great grandfather.

Birth: 18th MAY 1893, Jeffrey Street, Lybster, Caithness, Scotland.

Death 11th MAY 1968, Royal Infirmary, Dundee, Angus, Scotland.

I have another photo (JN15870P125), clearly taken at the same sitting, but Hugh solo - same suit, lapel badge, chain.

I *think* the lady may be his mother, Isabella, and the girl his younger sister, also Isabella. I’d be very interested to hear from anyone who knew Hugh and his family or who can confirm the females’ identities for certain. Thank you!" ----- Thanks to Michael Browning for this contribution.

In 1921 Hugh, a tailor by trade (he was an apprentice at the time of this photograph), married Jeannie Bella (Jean) Munro in Latheron Parish; one of their children, Catherine Sutherland Campbell, Michael's grandmother, was born 1923 in Lybster.

Hugh and Jean's family moved from Lybster to Halkirk around 1929/30 and then moved again, around the end of WW2, this time out of Caithness to Dundee.

Michael would be interested to know exactly where Hugh's family stayed during their time at Halkirk and also has an extensive family history available to any interested researchers. We can supply contact details for Michael on request.

The man is Hugh Campbell b1893 Lybster, d1968 Dundee, at age 18 when he was an apprentice tailor. I *think* the lady may be his mother Isabella and the girl his younger sister, also Isabella. I’d be very interested to hear from anyone who knew Hugh and his family or who can confirm the females’ identities for certain.
