Tattie Talks at Strathmiglo Vintage Rally

frame tattie scullA regular at Strathmiglo Vintage Agricultural Machinery Rally is John Marshall from Auchtermuchty, a great potato expert who leads ‘Tattie Talks’ and has spent a ‘lifetime in potatoes’. I didn’t get time to talk to Peter in depth, but he kindly let me photograph a few of his collection of tattie baskets from different eras showing the development of materials for tattie sculls.
