back to Aberdeen. The photo by George Craigen was
intended to catch a leaping dolphin, and he just
made it. It is a sign of the times, that the harbour
is now so clean that the dolphins can sail in and
eat the salmon before the seals can get at them.
There used to be a commercial fishery which extended
a net out into the harbour from the south shore,
catching salmon at the appropriate time of year. But
they were bought out by the fisheries further up the
river. Oh, and in the background, in the former
Hall Russell's drydock, is the Olympic Triton.
