Removal of guns from Broad Street

A Tom Kent picture.

Orkney Archives writes:
'64 pounder Muzzle loading guns that belonged to No. 1 & 8 companies of the Kirkwall section of the Royal Garrison Artillery. On disbandment of the RGA the guns were placed on the Kirk Green, but were eventually bought by J&W Leslie, Engineers, seen here removing them, 1930.'

Shops in the background are Kirkness and Gorie's, Wm Brough, Watchmaker, George Flett, Watchmaker, and Tom Kent's own, now all part of the Longship/Tait and Style.
