HY4426 : Wyre: ferry and post ladies swap sacks

taken 7 years ago, near to Hawn, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Wyre: ferry and post ladies swap sacks
Wyre: ferry and post ladies swap sacks
The first ferry of the day has just arrived at Wyre and this brings not only paying customers (actually, I was the only one) but also the day's post. (See HY4022 : Tingwall: the day’s post heads for Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre). Here we see the ferry lady handing the delivery to the island's postmistress and being handed in return the outgoing mail to be taken to the mainland and its onward journey.
