Explaining, Not Complaining

It's getting on for 50 years since The Sunday Times (1 November 1964) covered life on Taransay in its Magazine. John Bulmer was sent on the assignment and captured its owners, Roderick and Angus Campbell, in this photograph. They 'live the life of remarkable simplicity for islanders. Neither of them married and Angus, the younger at 62, does the cooking on a magnificent old peat stove, which is cracked from end to end and occasionally lets out clouds of smoke. "We live on fish and tatties," he explained.' Richard Evans has submitted the lead for this item.
