"Here is a family photograph set on a card
frame measuring approx 7 ins x 5 ins.
It is the wedding of my dad's uncle Pat
his bride, Kitty (sitting). My grandfather Philip John Docherty
is standing (left). The lady standing to the right is unknown. The
Docherty family were originally called 'Doherty' and came from Donegal,
Ireland coming over to Glasgow around 1890.
On the back of the card is pencilled the
number '1732' on the top left corner (and a shopping list!) and the front
bottom right corner is embossed with the studios name and address
'Morrison's Studios, 137 Leith Street, Edinburgh'.
My grandfather was born 29 Dec 1902 but I
don't know how old he was in the photo although he looks fairly young.
Uncle Pat was know as 'Packy' which we believe was derived from his full
name, Patrick. It is also not known if Pat was a brother of Philip or related some other way. I am still
researching the family."
