Kirkwall, Orkney, 1960

The Splendour of Scotland.  Glasgow:  Collins, 1960.

I just love the cars and trucks!  I really want a time machine!

Below, after taking a leisurely virtual stroll on the town courtesy of Google Streetview, I think the image below may be the same street today:

Today, Kirwall's population is over 9000.  One of the major annual events in the town is the Ba Game, held each Christmas Day and New Year's Day between the Uppies and the Doonies, each team representing one half of the town.
