Product Description


Thanks to the pioneers of photography represented in Gordon Wright's selection of images, we are able to gain a fascinating insight into life in the Orkney islands from the 1860s to the 1930s. These decades were times of great change in Orkney, and these photographs bear witness to developments such as the mechanisation of farming, and events such as the herring boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which brought employment and prosperity to the islands.
