The Ladies Club's strong ties with the main Lundin Golf Club as also in evidence. The 1909 Lundin Captain Robert Paxton is present (no. 34), along with his wife Margaret (no. 30), sister Maud (no. 28) and possibly his daughter Jessie (no. 36). Robert Paxton would have been heavily involved in the discussions that led to the move of the Ladies Club to their new location. We can be certain that other Ladies Club office bearers would have featured prominently in the photo. The Secretary Bella Forrester and the Treasurer Margaret Bremner, were aged 40 and 55 respectively at that time and were both playing golf on the day. A process of elimination suggests that they might be persons number 17 and 26 - can anyone reading this confirm? If you think you recognise any of the people shown - please do comment or get in touch.
It would be fabulous to put names to all of the 39 faces in the image. Thanks to the meticulous record-keeping at the Club, we know who was involved in arranging the official opening day and who played in the matches on the day. Many of these people must be in the photo. Names include local farmers George Bell and James Forgan and their families; Andrew Somerville the grocer and family; the widow and daughter of George Douglas the butcher; members of the Bremner / White family; several members of the Forrester family (hotel and boarding house keepers); and Sam Duncan Jr of the Lundin Links Hotel. I am continuing to try to put together the pieces of the puzzle and any clues at all that anyone reading this has could help the process greatly. Below are some enlarged images of the faces - have you seen them anywhere before?
