Cromarty Fishers photos taken c.1900

The photographs are in the ownership of Mrs Liz Whiteford who, some years ago, kindly allowed RCHS to make use of them. It is not known who wrote the accompanying article but in the opinion of RCHS it seems appropriate that both photographs and article should appear in the ‘Folk’ section of Cromarty community.
