Another no 4 barrier photo

I guess about 1960 open to correct date

no way is it 1960, I first came to Orkney in 1967 and there was no sand on the east side of No 4 barrier then. More like 1980.

True enough- when I was kid in the 70s you had to wade out to that wreck, and could walk along the blocks from one side to the other.

When I was 'young' I remember they had a wire out to this ship and were winching in scrap
