Welcome to our old photos

The last Embo fishing boat?


The following are from the Aberdeen newspaper Bon Accord and Northern Pictorial curtesy of the photo archives from Aberdeen City Council Library and Information Services. We believe the date of the paper was 14th July 1949.

We cannot trace who now owns the Bon Accord Publications and would be grateful for any help in finding them t o get their permission to use the photos here.


Can you recognise the girls?
The coopers are Jack Innes, Stonehaven and Alastair Graham, Fraserburgh. The foreman is James Lee, Stonehaven.

And the girsl? They're Alexina Fraser, Jessie and Wilma Ross, Christina and Bella Mackay. In the photo below we've also got Wilma and Jessie's Auntie Kennina MacKay.


Both photos were taken at Fraserburgh Curing Yard of Dan Taylor & Sons.
