The Lower Station, Stronsay

The Lower Station from the lifeboat slipway to Feastoon. The lifeboat house was removed in the late 1940s/early 1950s, so I would estimate this picture was taken late 30s/early 40s. The large house in the centre of the picture was called Davy's, and I was there in the early 1950s when it was pulled down so that the stones could be used to build the Moncur Memorial Church. My father Johnno Miller, and Sammy Reid, undermined the gable end, and Dod Burghes driving Ernie Firth's lorry, pulled it down with a long rope.
