On the jetty at Kyle

The piece of machinery which the boys are standing on may have been in use to make improvements to the surface of the jetty at Kyle. The little boy is Neil, the son of the photographer Duncan Macpherson, whose pharmacy can be seen in the background on the left. The identities of the man and the scout are unknown, but it is interesting to note that from the publication in 1908 of Scouting for Boys, by Robert Baden- Powell, the scouting organisation in the UK had over 100,000 members
