Bag nets drying on the links - c1960

Date Added: 01 January 2003 Contributor: Unknown Year: 1960 Picture No: 101

Not just small boys! Girls too. Comment left on 16 July 2003 by Jane Dunn
Could the picture been taken a couple of years before? I'm sure the boys are brothers. Comment left on 19 July 2003 by Sue Florence
This could be Donnie and Raymond Robertson if taken a couple of years earlier. Possibly Ronnie Winton in the middle?? Comment left on 08 February 2004 by Dorothy Ewen
This picture was in my auntie Ena's house and I think it is Pat Swanson (left), Kenny Mmacfarlane (middle) and Alan Macfarlane (right). Comment left on 28 January 2005 at 19:07 by Kenny MacFarlane
The Great 'Salmon Bagnet'. Probably cotton. Nylon courling had not quite arrived. Of Norwegian design, 200 odd years old. A rare sight not seen so much anymore. Comment left on 06 April 2013 at 12:38 by JOHN REDDIGAN
