Caithness, 1925 - Dr Durran & John Swanson

This is a page from a book of photographs of Caithness from 1925. It shows a photograph of Dr Durran and John Swanson, two locals of Thurso, with Dr Durran's puppies.

Thurso (from Old Norse, meaning 'Bull's water' and called Inbhir Theòrsa in Scottish Gaelic) is a town and former burgh on the north coast of the Highland council area of Scotland. The town's history stretches back, at least, to the era of Norse Orcadian rule in Caithness, which ended conclusively in 1266. The town was an important Norse port, and has a later history of trade with ports throughout northern Europe, especially during the 19th century.
