New use for dog

From the Tom Kent collection, a cutting of a contemporary newspaper report.

I believe the dog was called Tatters and the organ was in the Cathedral. The dog's master was John Wylie who had his business at 7-9 Junction Road. On John Wylie's death the business was sold to Alexander Sutherland whose son Pat was sent from Golspie to run the business. Pat married Mrs Wylie's niece, Vera Ritch, and spent the rest of his life in Orkney. Among the many contracts he carried out was the re-wiring of the Cathedral but no dogs were employed!
