Port Charlotte c.1890

Some great photographs of Port Charlotte village and distillery have come to light.

John Rucklidge posted on the internet some photos of Port Charlotte from around 1890 that were discovered in a house in Hexham, Northumberland.

The album belonged to Helen Orchard and the images were taken by William Miles (her father) who was the Customs & Excise officer at the Lochindaaal distillery.

Tantalizingly, some of the images show his children, including Helen, playing around Port Charlotte.

Helen still lives at Hexham in the North of England.
