Caithness, 1925 - Wick

This is a page from a book of photographs of Caithness from 1925. It shows a view from the north side of the Wick river looking south over to Pulteneytown in the region of Breadalbane Terrace.

A Royal Burgh from 1589, the town of Wick has even more ancient origins, as shown by its name which comes from the Norse 'Vic', the word for bay. It lies on the north-east coast of Scotland 19 miles south of John O'Groats.
