The County Men

"The County Men" at a meeting at the Council Offices. My dad David Gillespie is sixth from the left, fourth from the left was the Rousay foreman Mr Marwick but I can't name anyone else.
The date is an estimate.

2nd left (seated) is Ian Tulloch who used to live above what is now Mackays or is it M&Co? I think he worked in the architects office.

I think Number 10 is a Miller man from Stronsay and I think number 3 is the Westray foreman. Peter Harcus was the Eday foreman.

I think that the gentleman fourth from the left is Jimmy Marwick. I knew him quite well. He was the Rousay Roads Foreman for a number of years but tragically he died young.
