Stromness Shopping Week 1952

Shopping Week Queen - Ivy Flett

Photo taken by my dad, Jim Ritch.

Looks like Stanley Cursiter CBE RSA (etc) making the speech.
Ivy was Senior Dux medallist of Stromness Academy, so not just a pretty face (though she certainly was that too).
Jim must have been a teenager when he took this totally competent photograph.
