  'Isle Eriskay , Outer Hebrides, 1934.   They are all workers on the sea or the soil-men, women and children-singularly strong-looking, picturesque and often handsome.'   Dr Kissling's note, 1978   These portraits show four people from the community living on Eriskay when Kissling visited in 1934.   Top left: Seamus Gilleasbuig Stephain (James MacIsaac).   Top right: Annag Eachainn 'ic Dhomnall   Bottom left: Mary Johnstone.   Bottom right: This person has been identified as both Iain and Dugald MacDonald. The brothers must have looked very similar!   Research note, 2019
