    Love all the old pics of Wick, being an "oldie" I found it quite nostalgic.
    Imagine my surprise when I saw my Mum's photo in the Herring Quines picture of south view 7s. I am sure it was Sinclairs Yard of Lower Poultney(used to be near the saw mill and beside the old boat yard) to the right of the Service bridge if my old memory serves me right. I was just so pleased to see her.

    Default Some Recent Wick Photos

    All these photos were taken sometime in 1973. The photos are not mine but are public photos taken from a photo share web site.

    These have all been great to see. I really liked the aerial photo of Wick (could just see my old house) and the one of the camp site. I didn't realize the camp site was across the river from where it is now (unless I'm seeing that wrong?).

    I'm enjoying the old photos too - many thanks to all.

    I was curious about the Camping one at first glance, but now I think I've got it..... I see the Station Hotel to the left, then the steeple of Bridge street Church....... But I didn't think there was enough ground on the river side of the path for campling, and yet.....
    On the left side of the path was there a little fountain or green iron Well, something with a handle. ( I remember we used to play with it as we crossed the path )

    I'm also puzzled about the Dolphin Restaurant. I remember a Dolphin Cafe in the High Street, opposite Charlie Begg's shoe shop and up from Cabrelli's.
    It was a single fronted shop. That would be in late 40s / 50s

    The Dolphin Restaurant was going well into the 60s I think it was the Davidsons that had it at one time

    Peter, Do you mean the Yellow one we see here - or the one I remember
    ( could be that I am totally confused ! )

    I think you are right about the Davidsons.

    Thank you

    Hello trinkie,the camp site was where the rose garden is now,and if you look at the left of the washing line you will see the top of the old pump that was there ,and it was green,S.V.7.

    Here is a photo sent to me recently by a former Junior Choir member taken around 1951 - standing on what may have been a Steven's lorry.

    I love the 1973 photos, absolutely stunning and gives me a feeling of great warmth looking at them. I could almost step into those and walk along the street and never come back, fantastic, keep up the good work.
