Ailsa Cowie says, "My granny, Jean Reid (Adamson) was one of the attendants for the 1953 Herring Queen.  You can see her to the left of the Herring Queen.  this picture, taken at Wick Harbour shows how important fishing was to the town of Wick.  Lots of events were built around fishing and the harbour.
