Pulling a Gun Carriage through Kyle

A group of small boys, looking unusually smart in their white collars, haul a small gun carriage along Station Road, in front of Duncan Macpherson's pharmacy in Kyle of Lochalsh. It is probably the captured German gun he refers to in his book Gateway to Skye, describing it as "a bit on the small side", so that a wooden stand had to be made for it. The gun was presented to the Kyle Council by a visiting naval warship, and was placed in front of the Commercial Bank, seen on the right in the background, this being the most imposing and castellated building in Kyle. Eventually it found a resting place on the balcony of the Kyle Hotel
