This is a photo of skippers and crews off the whale catchers from Aalesund Norway,who used to frequently call in at Stromness in the 1950's.
Here they are in the Fisherman's Mission in Stromness.

The two girls in the second row from back are sisters, on the left Kathleen Pottinger (Laterly Mrs Sutherland) and to the right of the row is Joan.
