                         Ailsa Cowie's Great Grandad Adamson's boat the "Golden Dawn" being launched


Ailsa Cowie says, "This picture shows my Great Grandad Adamson's boat "Golden Dawn" being launched at Wick harbour.  This picture will show people how launching of a new boat is an important event in fishing towns. You can see the bunting on the boat.  A big crowd watches.  The boat is pulled in by a steam threshing machine from the other side of the harbour
