ROUSAY REMEMBERED

FROTOFT PHOTOS - PAST & PRESENT

Tom Kent's famous photo of Frotoft, circa 1900

02 FROTOFT 01 Frotoft, Rousay by Tom Kent

A superb view of the Frotoft houses - Langstane, Cott, Brough, Burrian, and Breek. The photographer is unknown, but the image was found in Mrs Middlemore's Journal, in the possession of Helen Firth - and it was she who allowed me to copy it

Looking west from Hullion Pier, showing Viera Lodge, Corse, Eynhallow and Costa Head. An old watercolour from Mrs Firth's collection - though the artist remains anonymous
