This picture was taken in Canada in the late 1950. The people are (from left to right) James Douglas Bews (Jimmack), Edgar Bews and his wife Meta Nicholson (from Little Feaston in Shapinsay). The Bews brothers were just two of the nine children of Peter and Christina Bews (nee Keldie) of Berryhill in Scapa.Edgar and Jimmack emmigrated to Canada, Edgar died there but Jimmack came home with his wife Simone. Meta is still alive and kicking in Calgary. Dated 9th May 2010- so the whitema should be laying!
