About this recording





The successful haulage firm D Steven & Son began in Murchison Street, Wick in 1920. Listen to the late Alex Steven talk about the early days of the business when his father transported fish and coal using a horse drawn cart. He explains how the business expanded over the years.

This interview was conducted in the 1980s as part of a job creation project funded by the Manpower Services Commission. The aim of the project was to collect memories of life in Caithness in spoken and written form.

The recording has since been digitised and re-edited.

With gratitude to David Steven for allowing Wick Voices to use the interview.

Thanks also to the staff of Nucleus: The Nuclear and Caithness Archive.
