Shops and vans in Westray


Collated by Nancy Scott in 2019



Nancy Scott has gathered together the memories and photos which have been in the Westray Heritage Centre since the exhibition of 2004, and added to them the changes that have taken place since then.

Shopkeepers were really bankers on the island, allowing customers to “mark down” when they needed goods and the hens were no laying and then to pay off gradually as they brought in eggs.  When the hens laid well the shopkeeper paid the customer!
