Description: Thurso Flagstone Works. Caithness. A general view across the harbour at Thurso toward the works showing flagstones awaiting shipment. The sheds of the works are seen on the left. The flagstones are arranged next to the quay where two, two-masted square-rigged sailing ships are berthed. The main ports of shipment were Thurso, Scrabster and Castletown. Flagstones were shipped to many British and foreign ports, the first shipment being 1825.
