Argyll Street Cricket Club715 viewsThis is a photo of Larchfield School pupils taken by John Logie Baird in about 1900 at the Larchfield cricket field near the Duchess Wood at Ardencaple. His friend Jack Buchanan, later to become a famous entertainer, is seated on the right with his cap at a rakish angle. Professor Malcolm Baird, who kindly supplied the image, says: “There are ten people in the group, and it is possible that JLB was the 11th member of the team! There is nothing more on record."
