EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in Scottish history. Taken on 25th May 1923, it showcases a glass plate mono negative of St Kilda Tweeds for Royalty. The man featured in the image is Mr G A Ferguson from Glasgow, who annually embarks on a journey to the remote Island of St Kilda to supply tweeds to royalty. However, this particular year proved to be more challenging than expected for Mr Ferguson. He encountered an unexpected storm that left him stranded on his small craft during the passage. For nine long days, he was reported lost at sea, causing great concern among those awaiting his arrival. Against all odds, Mr Ferguson eventually reappeared at Stornaway without having completed the treacherous journey. His survival and return were met with relief and astonishment by both locals and those familiar with his annual expedition. This photograph not only documents an extraordinary event but also provides insight into fashion trends of the time. The monochrome aesthetic adds depth and character to the image, allowing us to appreciate its historical significance even further. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we are reminded of Scotland's rugged beauty and the resilience of individuals like Mr G A Ferguson who dared to venture into uncharted territories for their craft.
