Barrie Burghes leaning on W.P.Drever's shop van

Unfortunately, I don't know the date this photograph was taken but I am guessing she was in her early teens at the time. I'm not even sure if it's taken in Stronsay or Kirkwall.

Looks like stronsay to me. Top of the West Pier.

Good grief that's my Nana!

This is a photo I put in the Stronsay Fish Mart Interpretation Centre some time ago. As the caption says, it is beside W.P. Drever's shop, which is opposite the Royal Bank of Scotland , or what was the Customs House in Whitehall Village, Stronsay.

You sent this photograph through to me a while back, thank you again,Bill. I was not sure where it had been taken. I'm guessing that it must have been when my Mom was very young, maybe shortly after my Grandmother passed away.

Hello Freda,

We lost touch many years ago. I have just looked at my Family Tree and have found that your Aunt and also mine was born on 26 June 1914.

All The Best and I hope you keep well.

Not quite sure of our connection, Ian but I think you must be referring to Aunt Chris (Christina) who
married Tom Carter on 5 January 1939. They had three sons, my cousins Brian, Eoin and Neil. Are you a relative from Uncle Tommy's side?
Nice to hear from you - I posted this photo of my Mom some time ago as you can see.

I thought that the Photo was of your Aunt. I emigrated to England in 1963, and I am still Married to this Orkney LADY! for nearly 54 Years.

The suffering has been worth it (Ha Ha)

You obviously have good taste if you married an Orcadian girl, Ian! For your Family Tree records. I believe Aunt Chris' birthday was 23 June 1914. She married Uncle Tommy on the date shown above. Best wishes to you and your family.
