Artist's Description

This 19th century construction called “lodberrie”, [from the old Viking tongue, “loading rock”], remains a Shetland classic as a holiday snap. Lerwick did not exist as a human settlement until the expansion of the herring fishing by Dutch fishermen in the 17th Century, who decided to anchor in the Bressay Sound and build a few booths, or fish merchant stores.
Lerwick was first mentioned in around 1620 as “a place of revelling, lawlessness and even frolicking”.

Now, i opted for the sepia tone to give it a slightly different flavour.
