A beautifully produced selection from Dolly Doctors unique collection of early plate-glass black and white slides, mainly taken in the 1930s, of life in Lewis and other islands in the Outer Hebrides, published here for the first time. The slides are particularly strong in their coverage of rural life such as fishing, the shielings, spinning, dying and weaving, going to the peats, crofting families and black-houses. Each picture has a full caption, and there is also an introduction about Dr Macdonald by well-known author Peter Cunningham, who knew Dolly Doctor well, and has given many extremely popular slide-shows of Dolly Doctors pictures over the years.
