Gigha: Historic Images

i

When I started to think about the sort of life my Gigha ancestors had lived, I needed to find some images. Post cards were big business at the turn of the 20th century, and so I started trawling places like ebay for all the old cards I could find. I presume the copyright has long expired so I’m hoping it’s OK to share my collection with you.
