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 discusses one of Mr. Cook's images.

'This one I put in to remind me that when I was in Bell's School, that was not unlike the sort of speed life was in Inverness, round about 1922, '23, '24. And I remember so very well that at Margaret's Street, where we used to come out there, there used to be on the other side of the house, a central picture house and some of my colleagues used to get up on their hands at Dr. Wilson Black's wall and walk across Academy Street on their hands. I never managed it, I'm afraid, I - Too heavy round here, I think. But at any rate, I was standing down there a few weeks ago trying to get across on my feet. Enough said' [Laughter]
