The staff of Walker's Sawmill, Shore Street, Inverness, 1915

A group photograph, taken in 1915, of the staff from Walker's Sawmill, located on Shore Street, Inverness.

During World War I, Walker's Sawmill was requisitioned by the government and converted to a munitions factory. The shortage of male labour meant many female workers were employed. On the front row (seated), 7th from the left is George Forbes, the sawmill's foreman, and next to him is Rab Cook, Joseph Cook's father. Standing at the far left is James Walker, who ran the sawmill and whose family owned the business.
