Linkshouse, Birsay

Ref picture 28393, here is another photograph of Linkshouse, Birsay taken probably not long after it was built in 1913. I found it in Mum's things. I don't know why she kept it as the only link to Birsay my family have is through my great-great grandfather, Matthew Spence.

Linkshouse was built by Robert Robson Comloquoy. Rob was a joiner and also fought in the Great War. He and his wife Jeannie (Jane Brown) Sabiston were married in 1909.

This photo of Links House is Post 1950 as evidenced by the vehicle between the house and what used to be the garage. We owned Link House between 1995 and 2000 and the wooden sun room above the entrance porch was replaced in the late 90s by a uPVC version having been blown in during a massive storm. We also replaced all of the windows with uPVC double glazing. The fence had also been removed by 1994.

Interesting, and thank you Mr Whitley. I still haven’t a clue why Mum kept it. I thought that my Dad took the picture. But if he did it was before 1947. He died then. If Mum took it she would have missed.
