In the days when Birsay caught haddock was king. At least half of the men on the beach then are no longer with us.

I'm going to have a go at naming some. Nearest to camera Barr the man near right. Maurice Garson, Billy Sabiston, Norman Stevenson, Harry Sabiston. I might be totally wrong. Great picture though.
