Tattie Time for The Loons folk!

Year is approximate! I presume that the picture was taken somewhere at the Loons, Stromness as all the folk pictured are from that area.

Lily Towers (holding her nephew, Michael Towers), Violet ? (in front of her is Sandy Towers, Michael's brother), Geordie Towers (Lily's brother, the child in front of him is Alan Seator), Ali Towers and Geordie Seator

The year must be about 1951-52. It was Ali's tattie planting day at Burnside. Note the stone posts in the fence.
