Man with kishie
1900s
William Humphray with a kishie of peats at Voes Boddam, Olnafirth. Willie was from Flugarth Lunnasting (born 2 Sep. 1831), where he went to the haaf fishing, and became skipper at the exceptional age of 15. T. M. Adie & Sons had fishing station at Skerries; Willie was requested to go to Papa Stour to work at Adies' station there. He went there in 1871, staying at the North Banks. After that station closed Willie went to stay at Burnside, Voe, in 1903, still in the employ of Adies. He finally stayed in Voe, and died 11 Dec. 1916.
