Dr Werner Kissling: A Retrospective

People and houses, Eriskay

Description:

 

'Isle Eriskay, Outer Hebrides It is 1934.

 

The people's dwellings are still mostly of the traditional type which is rapidly disappearing-thatched huts with rounded ends, in which the smell of peat and herb-dyed wool, of net and line prevails.'

 

Dr Kissling's note, 1978

 

This photograph shows two women, Anna Dhughaill and Anne Iagain, walking side by side past a house on Eriskay.
