Four men at their boats

Four men at their boats, photographed by the Campbeltown-based photographers Charles & Dennis MacGrory. Fishing played a major part in the local economy in the late-19th and early-20th century. Two boats, known as skiffs, were used to encircle a shoal of fish with a ring-net or trawl.
