Norwegion Whalers in Stromness

These small wooden boats were common sights both in Stromness and Kirkwall during the late 1950's. This was before the biggar industrial fishing boats from Norway and Denmark arrived in the 1960's. The exhaust note from the single cylinder engines could be heard from a long way off.
