Did photo frame pose a safety issue?

The Oban Times - - Districts -

I TAKE my hat off to Bid4Oban’s work and its in­no­va­tive ideas to wel­come visi­tors to the town.

Among its many ini­tia­tives was the in­stal­la­tion of a ‘photo frame’ on Ge­orge Street so peo­ple could take mem­o­rable self­ies with a framed back­drop of the bay, Ker­rera and Mull.

The only prob­lem was that there were re­ports of peo­ple clam­ber­ing over the rail­ings to get be­hind the frame, thus putting them­selves in dan­ger of fall­ing into the bay.

That said, I haven’t heard of any­one fall­ing off the sea wall or be­ing in­jured but it was pru­dent to re­move it and con­sider a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion. Af­ter all, it wouldn’t have been ben­e­fi­cial for some of the more liti­gious scoundrels in our midst to fake an in­jury and sue Bid4Oban.
