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 Exchange in 1870. Many of the shops, again like the market, they had their goods outside, you know? The Cabby Stance was in front; the Exchange was much deeper then, it was shortened to make way for traffic coming round from Castle Street. This is the Y.M.C.A. building here and these three ladies on top here were known to the Invernesians as Faith, Hope and Charity. Well, when this was demolished to make way for a clothing store, etc, these ladies disappeared. And, you know, that they landed up, believe it or not, in Orkney. Can you believe it? They went to Orkney; our Faith, Hope and our Charity'
