Good Templars

Paul writes:
"Further to Marion's picture #368, here are some more Good Templars. According to Peace's Almanac for 1911 Star of Kirkwall was Juvenile Lodge No 139 and J Windwick was Superintendent. There were also three adult lodges, St Magnus, Excelsior and Norseman's Home. I think the fair-haired girl on the far left is my great aunt, Violet Flett of Garden Street (1900 - 1966)."

Date estimated.

James Windwick was the son of James D Windwick and Isabella Duncan. His father died at Hall of Tankerness from a heart attack aged 39. James became a Journeyman Tailor but died of TB aged 23.
His gravestone in the Cathedral cemetary was erected by the Good Templars in recognition of his good work.
