It appears Mabel was quite a well known and accomplished swimmer. There are dozens and dozens of articles about her swimming accomplishments from 1917 -1925.

Here is a link to an article with a picture of Mabel. She is in the upper left picture.

Thanks RJ137 and Sandra

Quite an accomplished young lady.

Her American Breast Stroke record of 19 April 1918 was unbeaten until 5 February 1924  :o

Weren't mermaids credited with singing as well as their aquatic skills?  Would appear so :D

Aye mair questions than answers in a world where the past was a different place - that cannae be revisited!

Family surnames being researched ...
Crawford, Neilson, Lindsay, Reekie, Davidson
Drummond, Laing, Pearson, Tulloch ... will do for starters but there's a whole lot more!
