There is a long history of the artist capturing what is largely unnoticed. The two photos, “The Dardanelles” Looking North, and “The Dardanelles” Looking South are images of an unassuming lane in Stornoway. They are notable, because of their quiet and lack of remarkability. There are no people and in fact are not even evident on maps of Stornoway. So I met with the Stornoway Historical Society to learn more.
Listen to Malcolm Macdonald, Chair of the Stornoway Historical Society, talk about the area around the Old Fish Mart and the connections between Stornoway and the Dardanelles in France.
