Pictured left is Inverness photographer Jimmy Nairn. Mr Nairn was a prolific photographer in and around Inverness in the 1950s and his collection is available to view at the Highland Photographic Archive. The photograph was taken inside Mr Nairn's shop.

Pictured with Mr Nairn is Ronald (Ronnie) Miller, a school friend of Mr Nairn's son, Lewis. Ronald spent most of his spare time at the Playhouse Cinema, where Mr Nairn was the manager, and the Photo Cine Service where he learned all he could about photography and cinematography from "The Old Man". He became an optician but his spare time was taken up with these hobbies and he became very well known in amateur cinematographic circles, winning many awards over the years for his productions.
