This image shows a Bank of Scotland cheque, dated from 1950. The cheque is addressed to the Bank of Scotland, Inverness, and instructs that they pay Messrs Macrae &Dick Ltd thirty three pounds and ten shillings from the account of J.C. Gordon.

The firm Macrae & Dick was created by Roderick Macrae, a horse hirer from Beauly, and William George Dick of Redcastle. They set up business in Inverness in 1878 as postmasters and horse hirers. When motor cars arrived they set part of their original premises on Academy Street aside for hiring and selling cars. Today, Macrae & Dick is still a major provider of vehicles throughout Scotland
