Rhu wedding877 viewsAlice McDougall kindly supplied this picture of the wedding of her parents, Mr and Mrs Alexander Rankin Gold, in Rhu on July 16 1936. They were married from Armadale House in Rhu where her mother, Flora MacKinnon, worked for Colonel Kenneth Barge as a cook and where this picture was taken. Alice says: "Lydia Barge is the older girl seated in front of my father. My grandparents from Brechin are beside my father. My grandfather from Skye ibeside my mother. Beside him is Auntie Lottie an her husband John Cree who lived in Craigendoran, and their daughter is the other little girl. She had a shop at the east end of Helensburgh at one time I believe. Behind John Cree is Colonel Barge and behind his right shoulder is, I believe Nigel Barge."
