Stromness Harbour

Stromness Harbour, Date is a calculated guess, As it was after the Masonic Hall was built 1889, and before the Stromness Hotel 1901. Could the ship be the North Boat?

The ship is the 'St Ola I' - a steel screw steamer of 231 gross tons, built by Hall, Russell and Co. of Aberdeen in 1892 for the Pentland Firth service, on which she remained throughout her long career. She was broken up at Charlestown in 1951.

Could that boat be the Ola? My grandmother has this photo and think she told me it was the old Ola.
