Letters / Mousa Broch photo?

I am giving a lecture in Lerwick next month with the title ‘Did the broch of Mousa have a roof? – and why not.’

Just after the first world war the architectural historian J. Wilson Paterson, of H.M. Office of Works, took a squad to Mousa broch to survey and repair it.

Ian Tait tells me that he has seen a photo of the broch, presumably during that campaign, with men standing on scaffolding around it.

Has anyone seen that photo? If so, I am keen to use it in my lecture.
