Traditional Malting Floor
This image comes from the collection of Rodney Burtt, we're doing these in the order he catalogued and his original notes are:
'The scene of a malting floor which contained 22 tons of barley couched up to 15 inches.'
Now, here's where it gets a little mysterious. As you can clearly see from the 2 photographs we'll be published in the coming days of the Glen Mhor malting floor, this one is slightly larger. Could it potentially be Glen Albyn? Or could this be another floor within the maltings at Glen Mhor? Rodney kept it for a reason, if it's not Glen Mhor, then it seems likely, the next candidate is Glen Albyn, across the road. Only more research and discoveries will confirm.
My thanks to Alan for providing the image, his insight and to Rose for processing the original and giving it a new lease of life. This will be available in our Photograph Section.
