    Left to Right:
    Isabella Moffat, Agness Moffat, George Moffat, Jane Moffat,
    Elizabeth Moffat, Isabella (Patterson) Moffat, John Moffat, George Moffat.

    Back of photo indicates it was taken in Dunse, Scotland by "D Davidson, Castle Street, Dunse The Dunse photographic Studio", and handwritten on back says "Moffat Family Scotland".

    At first it was believed that this was Robert Moffat and Abigail Stoddart and family from New Zealand in Scotland for a visit. But this seems unlikely given what a trip from New Zealand to Scotland and return would have entailed in the 1890s and Dad's belief that the family were never very well off, so couldn't have afforded such a journey, and information from Dad and Uncle Bob both that World War 1 was the first time Grandad had been out of New Zealand.

    It seems much more likely that it is Robert Moffat's cousin George Moffat and his family in Scotland.
