Virtual Virtual Event

In this centenary of the birth of George Mackay Brown, whose father was a postman in Stromness, Prof. Tom Stevenson, whose mother ran the Quoyloo Post Office for fifty years, looks at the history of the postal service in Orkney. He tells of the early days of the Penny Black and Twopenny Blue stamps, the development of the mailboat service and the air mail, and pays tribute to the people who worked so hard to make sure that whatever the weather, the mails would get through.
