Filling sacks with grain on boat and loading onto horse & cart

Here we see sacks being filled with grain from a boat in Campbeltown Harbour and the grain being loaded onto a horse and cart.

Campbeltown was heavily dependent on its harbour for sea-trade during the early nineteenth century. Sailing ships were still very much a part of life at the docks for importing grain and goods, and exporting fish, whisky and coal
