This photograph shows Dr. Pern with a shot-gun carrying a freshly killed bird, St Margaret Island, circa 1910.

The O'Connor family leased the island for a period of time in the early 20th century to graze their cattle in the summer. There was only one shack on the island, however the O'Connors would invite friends and family to visit over the summer to camp. The photograhper, Eileen O'Conner seems to have learned photogrphay from Dr. Pern.
