Caithness mystery photo

This wonderful photo, as well as several others connected to the Caithness family history, was sent to me some time ago.

Unfortunately, the vital explanatory captions to these images, as well as the name and email address of the sender, have been lost. If anyone recognises the photo - premises of C Caithness, Baker and Pastrycook - please let me know. The sender's name may have been Peter Hay, possibly in Australia. I would be most appreciative.

Update: The photo shows premises of Charles Caithness who settled in Australia after some years as a ship's baker. He was the brother of Mary Anne Caithness, wife of Captain William Bell. Thanks to Steve Steere for clarification on this. I'm now in contact with Peter Hay, thanks to the power of internet.
