Welcome to the Johnston Collection
The Johnston Collection represents the work of three generations of Caithness photographers who captured images of life in and around the area between 1863 and 1975. During that period they produced around a hundred thousand glass plate negatives. Of these, around fifty thousand survive and are held in trust by the Wick Society.
Visit the Wick Heritage Centre and see our Johnston Gallery crammed with hundreds of real photographs. Talk to the people who are responsible for the collection and share your stories of a bygone era.
If you have any information about any of the photographs listed here on the website then please use the onscreen submission form to share the information with us so that we can add it to our database.
