Piers Past

Stromness Piers have been a favoured photographic subject for centuries, evidenced by the postcards produced by Tom Kent at the turn of the last century and the postcards of today. In this section we have gathered photographs from the Orkney Library & Archive, the Gunnie Moberg Archive, Hoy Heritage (Harry Berry collection) and the Stromness Museum late 19thC photography collection. We intend to keep adding to this section.
