" I don't like to be reminded of 2007 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

 That's the year my pet goldfish died. :( :( :( :(

 I had to buy a Budgie and that didn't live long either."


But you weren't supposed to keep the Budgie in the goldfish bowl, without emptying out the water first.  :-\ :-\ :-\

If you compare it with today's Google Earth image, the photoghraph looks as if it was taken in Harbour Street, Port Erroll, Aberdeenshire, between number 20, and the offset cottage, between no's 20 and 21 looking South. In the skyline, you can see the golf course horizon, which is basically the same as it is today. The bridge in the photograph, has been replaced with the newer one. I would suggest that they were probably Salmon fishers. But that's only an opinion from an Aberdeenshire lad.

Further, the bridge, "in the background" crossing onto the golf course is the "Ladies Bridge", which crosses the Water of Cruden. It was built in 1922, paid for, by the ladies of the village, so they could get to the beach, hence the name.

So the photograph is more than likley dated post 1922.

Could I direct you to the date Old Rowley gave in Reply #9 - ish. He dated it as 1902-1910.

He's a wiz at dating and I'd agree with him- clothing suggests that period.
