Colour photograph of a painting of the ‘Mary Stewart’ in full sail. The original painting is in the family of David Roberts (1849-1897), a native of  Anglesey, who was the master on the Mary Stewart, and possibly part owner, from about 1886 to 1897. The remains of the Mary Stewart can still be seen in Scarinish Harbour.

Colour photograph of a green double-decker bus at the pier-head car park in around 1975. On the side of the bus are the words ‘London Country’, plus a long Caledonian MacBrayne banner printed with the names of many west-coast islands including Tiree, and there are several items of laundry hanging in the windows suggesting that this is a long-distance tour bus. The old ticket office is visible on the left, and note the lack of buildings in the background on the right.
