A small Ba game

A Dougie Cooper picture, date estimated. The Ba seems to have been a much smaller game at this time. I assume this would have been in the days when it was only played by people who came from Kirkwall.

The Christmas Day Ba used to be a lot smaller than the New Year one which was thought far more important.
