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.

'Of course, all academy boys were always good boys. And what they used to do was, they used to come up from the old academy in, at lunchtime, and with big safety pins, and when the ladies were having a claik [blether] they would tie their skirts together. And then they would retreat to one of the shop doors and wait for them to move away. Yes, they've always been good boys in the academy'
