Scottish Court in session

It's very rare indeed that photos of any proceedings in a Scottish court are allowed. I had been given special permission from the senior Sheriff to take photos. The photo was taken in the 1980's but the courtroom will still look exactly the same.

This is no film set, this is the real thing - a Sheriff Court - and it was a special occasion. There was not the usual one, but three, judges (Sheriffs in Scotland) who were on the bench to mark the retiral of the senior Clerk of Court after decades of service.

Present in the court in Dundee, Scotland were his relatives, colleagues and local solicitors.
