st.magnus leaving kirkwall pier

One of my favorite "North boats", the St.Magnus, leaving Kirkwall Pier. As young boys we were enthalled with the loading of the cattle by the steam winches. To us they seemed indestuctable with the speed and power that they worked. P.S.they loaded the aattle individually by sling. Added by Phil Brough.
