Laying of the Foundation Stone, Kyle Hall

Kyle Public Hall is next to the Kyle Free Church, on Kenneth Street, the road out of the village towards Plockton. The foundation stone was laid on 3 September 1931 by Sir Daniel and Lady Hamilton, and the hall was completed and officially opened on 8 April 1932. After the hall was built, Sir Harry Lauder, a regular visitor to the area, gave a concert to raise funds to pay off debts. He evidently sang for an hour! The man in the dark suit in the centre foreground is Mr Hossack, the local bank manager
