[edit] Information

Explores the treasures of the Johnston Collection in Wick, a unique archive of near 50,000 photographs that provide an enthralling insight into more than a century of Highland history. From 1863 to 1976, three generations of the Johnston family ran a photography business in Caithness, documenting the social history of northern Scotland. They photographed the herring industry at its height, captured the Helmsdale gold rush, took portraits of boys before they left for the trenches of World War One, and recorded the agriculture, trades, customs, sports, weddings and people of Caithness and Sutherland. Today 50,000 of their glass plate negatives are preserved in the Wick Heritage Centre and digitised online for the global community to enjoy.
