Joseph Cook was a popular Inverness speaker who collected photographs on many subjects to illustrate his talks. In this audio extract, taken from a recorded slide show, the Reverend Derek Henderson of Inverness introduces Mr. Cook's work to his audience.

'What we are going to be showing tonight are a selection from a very large collection of photographs which were collected by Mr. Joseph Cook who was managing director of a very fine establishment here, a timber merchants, a very large concern indeed. And his hobby during his life was the collection of photographs. And he would ask you, if you had a photograph of old Inverness, he had no trepidation, he would say, 'Can I have that, please?' And what he did was, he took it to Andrew Paterson, who was a very well known photographer not only in Inverness but nationally, and these photographs were made into these glass slides and the definition is quite remarkable'
