Three supervisors, a foreman and five workmen, one of whom looks as if he might have been doing some actual digging. Nothing changes.

I must do some research but I am pretty sure that my Grandfather, Samuel Firth had the contract to build Stromness Waterworks

You wouldn't happen to have any photos of the Waterworks under construction would you?
