Drumming in the Market

Agnes McBarron of Kirkwall has given us a picture of Charlie Millar and Philip Stout, who together have drummed in the market for the past 23 years. This picture was taken in August 2003.

Comments:
A very interesting picture is this one, and it must be a record for the number of times this has been performed by the two people concerned.
It just happens that I have two copies of the 1949 drumming in of the market, which I intend to send in also, as a matter of interest.
It would be good to know of any other pictures around, of other participants.
