This recently donated photograph (one of a pair) is of a roup (sale) at Kitty or Catherine Howitt's Croft on the Old Skene Road. Kitty's father had been the soutar (shoemaker) from the 1870s. Kitty died on the 5th March 1952 aged 76, the day after her sister Margaret who was 80. The photograph may date from that time. Note the children on the old chaise longue in the foreground.
