Default Inverness pipers 1894 pic

Don't want to be accused of cross-posting, but I just posted about my new website in the Industry News below, and realized that a never-before-published picture on my new homepage might be of interest here.

Competing pipers from the 1894 Northern Meeting at Inverness. Professionally taken pic with absolutely incredible clarity. If you can identify any other pipers, let me know, either here or through the site.

The pic is on the bottom right corner of this page:

McGillivray Piping

There are also some fairly historic and rare music collections under the "Specials" tab. And a pretty unique practice chanter under the "Miscellaneous/Vintage items."

Holy smokes, I wish I had the money for that WWI set. Those are such handsome pipes.

Dumb question: are those military medals or competition medals they are wearing all over their jackets?

I'm pretty sure those are competition medals. That was the fashion in those days.

Wow, that's quite a shot.



The guy behind Roddy Campbell looks suspiciously like a time-travelling Gordon Campbell.



Could the young lad midway between Nicholson MacKenzie and John MacDonald be a young Willie Ross? He would have been sixteen at this point. Bit of a reach, maybe.



I wonder if one of the 'civilians' is the mysterious Dr Bett.

Frankly, I think it would be just fine to bring that back.

What struck me is that there are at least five pipers wearing the uniform of The Black Watch.

And that the civilian long hair sporrans lack tassels
