Try looking up your great-aunt in LIBINDX at http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/mainmenu.asp and see if there is a mention of her baker's shop.

I don't recall any buildings still in existence at the Cabrach with a shop front like that. There is certainly no bakery there nowadays.
Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.

isn't that just for people who have passed away.  Annabella moved to British Columbia in and around 1923.

What do you think the products in the windows are?  The shop just doesn't look like a bakers to me.

Could it have been the shop when she had just taken it over?  Hence the removal of the name over the shop and the lack of bread and cakes in the window.

It's the sort of photo that local newspapers like to run, asking people for memories.  Our local paper has one every week.  Anyone know what the paper for that area would be?

Kooky, I know who the people are.  I am just looking for more information on the bakery that Annabella Mitchell owned around 1918-1920.  Not quite sure of when her husband Charles passed away 1916.  She and the kids stayed on the farm for a few more years at smallburn or somewhere.  Then she started a boarding house, then she bought the bakery.  Maybe the picture in the paper would give me some hints. Thanks for all your help.

I sent it to the Northern Scotland paper a while back, and he said it was a good idea but he needed an original one and I didn't have one.  He didn't think it would reproduce very good.  I tried.
