Looking Back At Tiree

old post office workers

The postmistress and postmen at Scarinish Post Office in 1919.

There is something about old photographs that attracts everyone, you may not know all or any of the people in the picture but you can’t resist looking.

The hats, the clothes, posture and body language take us back to a place in time that some of us can remember whilst others can only catch a glimpse of through the photo.

Over the next few months we will be publishing some pictures courtesy of An Iodhlann, if anyone can provide the names of anyone that hasn’t yet been identified please lat us know here at the Business Centre and we will pass the information on and print an update in future issues.

In the picture from left to right are:
(standing) Archibald MacLean, ‘Bayview’, Scarinish; Donald MacDougall, Kilmoluaig;
(in carriages) Hugh Lamont, Ruaig; Mary MacNeill; Jack Munn, Heanish; John MacDougall, vet;Margaret Robertson, Scarinish (postmistress); unknown; unknown.
