Thank you to Maureen, who asked Donald to make a donation to the Fair Isle Lighthouse Society
for her birthday gift. Cheers!
The Wilson Family 1928 - together again.
Springfield croft and grain drier.
Donald's grandfather, Jerome Wilson (of Gaila) who left Fair Isle for Nanaimo, Canada in 1890 came back for a visit with his family. The small girl in centre you may know, Annie Wilson/Thomson (now of Shirva) her father also Jerome Wilson is standing behind her. I don't think many immigrants went over seas and came back to visit? The Scotch Bakery, the family business must of been quite successful it spanned 4 or 5 generations of Wilson family.

I adore the last three photos! Henry is a lucky boy to grow up in such a beautiful place!ReplyDelete
I remember thinking what a special place it would be for kids in such a small school, and what a challenge when they. Went off to high school. Good luck Henry! Spectacular pictures of the puffins. I would swear that we were right on the spot of your 'Sunny Days' picture when we visited.ReplyDelete
