Neil Macpherson

Neil Macpherson, son of Kyle chemist and photographer Duncan Macpherson, is photographed here posing for his father probably in the garden of the family home, Glenquithel, in Kyle of Lochalsh. He wears plus fours as part of his tweed suit. From a young age, Neil appeared in many of his father's photographs as he often accompanied him on walking or cycling excursions in the area. Neil was born in 1919 and brought up in Kyle, but was tragically killed in 1944 as the result of an accident at just 24 years of age, while serving in the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent.

The photograph is printed as a postcard, with the reverse divided for communication and address, but it was unlikely to have been used as such. Duncan Macpherson may have been using card left over from printing the photographic postcards he sold from his Pharmacy shop in Kyle.
