Inverness Girls Choir

Members of the Inverness Girls Choir, wearing Cameron tartan dresses, are singing at a tree-planting ceremony on 8 August 1953 to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The tree was a flowering cherry. The youngest girl is 6-year-old Angela St. Barbe-Baker, daughter of Richard St. Barbe-Baker, founder of the Society of the Men of the Trees.

The choir was founded by Pat Maclean, seen here on the extreme left, and Elizabeth Holden. They performed at many fund-raising activities in connection with the Inverness Amenities Association.
