A Highland Milkmaid, Kyle

Duncan Macpherson, the photographer and pharmacist in Kyle of Lochalsh, conceived the idea of a series of photographs depicting rural Highland life, some of which he produced as postcards for sale in his shop. Unfortunately, the images he had in mind were fast disappearing, and his few photographs following this theme, such as hand spinning and the milkmaid shown, were set pieces rather than genuine daily occurrences
