Old St Kilda pictures

Rare find of 1920's St Kilda pictures found deep in the archives of Glasgow University...

Great detail on some of the shots in the big flickr downloads!

Thanks for sharing that - must have been quite an adventure for the cameramen in the 1920s! Natives indeed!

I understand that the St. Kildans had to drown all those dogs when they evacuated...

No, I don't put down ANY dogs and I don't think the St Kildans had a lot of choice. Still, live is hard and in another six months or so, donegaldan might be eating husky pup soup like his forebear - Tom Crean, so I'll say no more
