Slight browning to edges of pages through age. Couple of slight creases to top edge of D/J. Price clipped to D/J.

Tom He derson, Curator of the Shetland Museum, has in his introduction, placed the photographs in their historical context, whilst hjis captions provide invaluable information on each subject. Illustrated throughout.
