Thanks for posting!  The women appear to be wearing similar clothing, do you know if the image was taken at a work place?
Yes, they had been gutting fish or else drying them.  She is the person 2nd from the end on row 3  on left & her daughter is 2nd front the end on row 2 on right.  

These people worked so hard it.  It is difficult to imagine for me.  Thank you for your interest
That is a very exciting photo, and very old. I always are very exciting looking at old photos like this, it really tell a story and must be even more exciting when they are old family member

Thank you letting me have a look into your private photo a pleasure
Thank you very much.  Yes it is an old photo and was lucky to have my cousin let me copy it when in Shetland in May of this year.  It was a beautiful trip and we were so well treated.  Got quite a few pictures whilst there.

Are those apron dresses on the women and what are they holding. It looks like it is at a workplace. Great old family photo. Thanks for sharing.

I believe they are holding fish!  Unsure if they are aprons but probably as they were gutting fish.
