That's an awfully small photo Fred. Zooming in on the page, I think I can make out the caption: The StROmnESS LifE-BOAt to the RESCUE WRECK Of thE CARMANIA II On thE KIRKYARD ROCKS NEAR StROmESS. This arbitrary use of upper and lower case suggests the photographer was the same one as took picture #23651. Do you know who he was?
