Yesterday we celebrated Oliver’s 45 year anniversary as ‘Wool Man’ at Jamieson & Smith Shetland Wool Brokers. We thought we’d share some images of his time here since 1967.
Brilliant photos – I especially love the (velvet?) crimson trousers in the picture on the pier 🙂
Many congratulations to Oliver!
What a man! Thank you making wool in great supply and class.
From a Jamieson in Australia with strong Shetland origins … you only get 10yrs for murder mate, what did you do? Lol. Well done and thank you for everything you do.
I love this post and the magnificent work that Ollie does for Shetland Wool.
