Sadly I do not know the make of the car if you do please let me know. Now

ROBERT WATSON LTD 3364
Standing outside the workers entrance of Robert Watson Ltd; in Belfast in
1905 are the employees having their photograph taken for a special occasion.
The firm made mattresses and the reason for this photograph is the man on
the far left of the second row. His name is James Stevenson and he started
there as a young lad and now into his sixties he has been presented with a
gold watch and chain which he is proudly showing for 50 years of service.
Perhaps the man at the far right of the row could be a Watson or a manager
and I would say that the lady in the centre seated would be the manageress.

Unknown as is the Lady just out of the camera shot. Just look at the lace

and slicesof something else delicious i am sure. Well as least Nancy won't
go hungry with what's on her plate.

golf course. Mary Queen of Scots, the first woman golfer, is responsible for
the concept of caddies on the golf course. When she played,
