I'm looking for photos of Wick in the days of the steam drifters, can anyone help? Anything that helps build up a picture of how it looked would be much appreciated.

Somewhere, there's a superb photo taken from the harbour light looking back towards drifters heading for the quayside. Dashing Spray was in the foreground.

theres a couple of books, From Herring to the Seine net, and Wick Harbour, both by Iain Sutherland, both with a lot of Wick pics and info. Probably both out of print now, tho...
