Quoiting Green, 1910’s

Another previously unseen amazing photo of Auchentibber’s Quoiting Green. This time the south eastern corner. Some of the picket fences have been painted white and in the background is the rustic pavilion, which was covered with nailed pieces of bark to make it look like a living, growing building.

A players in the foreground, holding a quoit in his right hand is posing for the camera, as everybody is here in this picture, spectators included. Here’s the full, complete wonderful photo by David Ritchie. I’m confident this photo is now over 100 years old.
