Old post card of Stromness. The big white building must be the Stromness hotel which opened in 1901.

Pole star pier looks a bit different today.

Looks like the back of Victoria House in the right foreground with the houses of Queen Street, off Franklin Road, just showing beyond the grass in the foreground. The two storey house beyond that will be, I think, the Wisharts' home - can't remember its name.

Might that be the Pole Star in the harbour?
