Stormy on Ayre Road in the 60s

A wider view of the previous picture, with the leading light tower clearly visible over at the Ayre Mills. The light from this would be lined up with the light from its partner placed up on Glaitness Road to aid navigation into the harbour. Both were demolished when the pier was extended.
