Friday photo: A good geansaidh!

As promised here is your second photo for the week, and it comes with the oath that I shan’t forget my Friday Photo ever again! 

It is horrible weather in Stornoway today, pouring with rain and chilly to boot.  What I need is a good geansaidh, perhaps something along these lines:

These dapper chaps hailed from Vatersay and Mingulay, and were snapped in August of 1909.  They are bang on trend with their flat caps and high waist trousers, but most importantly on a day like this, they look nice and warm!  Best to skip the pipe smoking though…

These photos are available for your perusal at Stornoway Library.
