Am Buachaille / the cow-herd or shepherd around 1925

This picture was found in a small photo album in Vaul titled `Idle Days`. Although men and boys were employed to keep cows and sheep grazing in the correct area before fences became commonly used, this particular shepherd looks rather too well dressed to be at work and may not be a real shepherd at all!
