Old Photograph Crofters Cottage South Ronaldsay Scotland

Old photograph of a woman outside her Crofters cottage on South Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands, Scotland. South Ronaldsay is one of the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland. It is linked to the Orkney Mainland by the Churchill Barriers, running via Burray, Glimps Holm and Lamb Holm. During the 19th century the island's economy benefited from the herring fishing industry. Tomison's Academy was founded by William Tomison, a native of the island who became Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company in Canada.
