Why is Laurel Avenue a dual carriageway?

Where's Jock ?  In 1940 something ?

"Happy Harry" was the (English) teacher !

That would be "Happy Harry" Henderson who's there second left. He ended up as head of English at the High School where this photo was presumably taken. I'm wondering what the structure at the back is? Could it possibly be a HORSA hut - Huts On the Raising of the School leaving Age..... to 15 post-war? These went up latish 40s but that could well already be a fairly aged building, in which case the time wouldn't fit. The kids certainly seem to be dressed in the "austerity clothing" of the wartime or immediately post-war years.

I got married in there in 1955 after scrubbing the floor (together with my mate Hamish) for the Youth Club's Friday night dances !

This is the construction of the pensioners' houses and the shopsbetween St Mungo and St Margarets in Dalneigh 1961/62. The structure in the foreground became Christison's shop. This is currrently trending on Inverness When You Were A Kid.
