    Your picture and postcard collection must be awsome Thirsaloon. Thank you so much for sharing them. They have been fantastic for me to get a bit of a mental picture of the area.

    Great photos Thirsaloon! This is a most interesting one, where the fountain down by the river is in the process of being built. Do you have a year for it?

    Hello Betty,

    There is a link to the Fountain on caithness.org. It was recently restored.


    The date given is 1906.

    I am posting the following on behalf of Trinkie. LB



    I love this old photo, taken by Johnston just outside the Studio in Market Place.
    An old Soldier walking from Edinburgh to Land's End via Wick, with all his belongings in his cart.
    This picture reminds me of the Old Soldier William Wordsworth writes about in The Prelude - as a young boy he too met such a man. Wm Wordsworth plucks up courage to speak to this old fellow. The soldier responds to his greeting -

    "Slowly from his resting place
    He rose, and with a lean and wasted arm
    In measured gesture lifted to his head,
    Returned my salutation."

    On their return from War, many soldiers found themselves homeless and unable to settle, so they packed a few things and started to walk, living in the open, sleeping under the hedgerows and eating what they could find ! I wonder if this old fellow ever made it to Land's End.
    The name of the side of his cart is R.Carlisle

    When I looked closely at this wonderful photo of the old soldier Trinkie I noticed a building behind him which isn't there now - I wonder what it was - does anybody know?
