K343 QUEEN Mystery. 1 of 2

This photo was found in the family Album of the Sinclair's from the QUOYS in holm. It is not yet known why the photo was there, no family connection with fishing is known. The vessel was registered in Kirkwall in January 1902, previously FR 590, Fraserburgh, it was built by Weatheralds? of Cockenzie, the owners were George Shearer, James Budge and James Shearer, Fishcures of Holm. Her Master was Alexander Bruce and a crew of 6 men. She was condemned for use in 1913. But I still don't know why it was in the Grandfathers family album.

Reference to Groundwater, photographer, Holm, there was an old man, who we used to call Grundie lived up the Northfield Road, who had greenhouses glazed with glass negatives. Could he be the Photographer?. By the way, he used to race you if you coughed, as he was afraid of germs.
