The Mcdonald Collection

HUNDREDS of photographs of Wick life spanning more than half a century are to go on show during the town’s gala week.

They will form an exhibition called The McDonald Collection being held at the St Fergus Church Hall for one day only on Wednesday, July 31.

On display will be more than 450 prints from the archives of McDonald Photographers, the family business in Shore Lane run for many years by Janet McDonald and her late husband Ian.

There will be a mix of black-and-white and colour photographs taken at community events, special occasions and other assignments covered by the McDonalds in Wick and district from around 1950 until the early 2000s.
