We had an interesting enquiry today which I was unable to satisfy. Our visitor’s father used to work in the Kirkwall Gasworks and indeed worked there until its closure.
On the final day of operations, a photographer took several photographs which our visitor’s father then received copies of. These photographic prints were loaned out to various interested parties and eventually, all were lost.
It was thought that Dougie Shearer had been the photographer in question, but I could not find any photos in our Phoenix photography collection that seemed to fit.
Who could this photographer have been?
