Three skiffs

Three skiffs at the old quayhead in Campbeltown. Skiffs were the small boats used for trawling. They were driven by sail or oars. Two skiffs used a ring-net or trawl to encircle a shoal of fish.

Photographs such as this, showing two almost-identical images, were designed to be used with a stereoscope, a viewing-device which produced a three-dimensional effect
