Black & white photograph of GPO engineer Donald Quintin Campbell standing by his company van in summer 1950. Donald, or Donnie or DQ as he was known, was one of the first and longest serving telephone engineers on Tiree. He was sent to the island for a few months under protest in 1948, but ended up staying for 21 years. In 1954, Donald married Jessie MacLean Kennedy of Kilmoluaig, and they lived in Machair House, Ruaig, which was owned by the GPO at the time.
