|Description ||This picture of the the Stones of Stenness dating to ca 1900, was just published in the Orkney Today newspaper on 15 October 2004.
Please note the third stone under the excarnation slab was still extant at that time. My local guide told me it was broken in 1969.|
|Thanks for this Alex! I'd been wondering how the circle really used to look. Do you know if the dolmen was original, or if it had been re-erected too? It looks too neat somehow...|

|Blimey, that's a rare photo. Thanks.|
|What a superb historical document. You never know, perhaps one day our pics may give such an insight.|
|I love seeing these old pictures. Its amazing how much some of these places have changed in less than a hundred years, after surviving for thousands beforehand. So I am sure our pictures will be just as interesting to others in the future as these are to us now. I always particularly like the people in them. It would be good if we could do recreations of these old pictures, with the same view and similarly posed contributors !|
| What a great picture. It's fascinating to see how the site has changed in only 100 years. What a shame we can't dig up pictures from a few thousand years ago!!|
