Manager's House, New Island Whaling Factory

This picture shows the manager of the whale processing plant on New Island. It was operational from 1908 to 1916 and saw many thousands of whales processed for their oil and meat. It is interesting to the see the style of clothing which would not have looked out of place anywhere in the British Empire at the time.
