Old Photograph Post Office Hoy Orkney Islands Scotland
Old photograph of the Postman and Post Office on Hoy, an island of the Orkney Islands, Scotland. It is the second largest in the archipelago after the Mainland. It is connected by a causeway called The Ayre to South Walls. In Norse mythology, Hoy is the location of the never ending battle between Hedin and Högni. Orkney Ferries serve the island with two routes, one of which links Lyness on Hoy and Longhope on Walls with the island of Flotta and Houton on the Orkney Mainland. The other route links Moaness in Hoy to the island of Graemsay and Stromness on Orkney Mainland.
