Driving Cattle Through Portree

A photograph, taken by George Washington Wilson in the late 1890s, of drovers guiding Highland cattle through the streets of Portree, on the Isle of Skye.

George Washington Wilson was a Scottish photographer who pioneered the development of photography outside the studio and played a part in developing the mass production of photographic prints. He studied art in Edinburgh and London, but eventually set up a studio in his native Aberdeen. Wilson began, as was common, as a portrait photographer, but increasingly moved into landscape photography.
