EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, two Duff Highlanders, Alexander Grassic Cumming and his son John, engage in a lively conversation amidst the picturesque setting of the Braemar Games in Scotland, circa 1911. The elder gentleman, Alexander, is clad in his traditional Scottish attire, complete with a tartan kilt, sporran, and a full beard that adds to his distinguished appearance. His youthful counterpart, John, also wears the Highland costume with pride, reflecting the deep-rooted Scottish traditions that permeated the region. Alexander, a resident of Fife Cottages in Braemar, overlooked the very field where the Games were held, making him an integral part of the community. His proximity to the event allowed him to partake in the festivities and share in the rich history of the Highland Games. John, too, was a local resident, further solidifying the familial and communal ties to the land and its customs. The backdrop of the photograph is adorned with the vibrant colors of the Games, as spectators and participants mingle, creating an atmosphere steeped in Scottish heritage and tradition. The presence of King George V and Queen Mary adds an air of regality to the scene, further emphasizing the significance of the event and the proud Scottish heritage on display. This photograph captures a moment in time, where two generations of Duff Highlanders share a conversation, rooted in their love for their land, traditions, and the annual Braemar Games. The image serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of Scotland and its people, who continue to celebrate their rich history and culture through events like the Braemar Games.
