Advent Quiz - Day 23

Question 23

George Mackay Brown wrote 'Per Mare:The Stromness Pagent' from which the following is an extract. But can you tell us in which year it was performed?

Tall houses, with gardens and piers,Where the stylish merchants lived, Small slipways for the fishermen, A new kirk, inns and ale-houses,The street uncoiled like a sailor's rope from north to south.And closes swarmed up the side of the hillAmong gardens and clouds, And closes stepped down to the harbourAnd the nets and whitemaas. 
(hint - have a look in the book Stromness Late 19th Century Photographs)
