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.

'The railway platform, at the turn of the century, round about 1910, 1920; I haven't got a date for this one. You see in the front there a boy with a tray. Well in these days there were no corridors in the trains and there were no buffet cars, of course. So if you were going on a journey this boy used to run up and down, and other ones too, calling out, 'Cigarettes, chocolate, oranges, etc,' so you stoked up from him for your journey'
