The Aegre Guestbook

Visitors to The Aegre

Unexpectedly, on our arrival in Madeira and from then on, we had many visitors to The Aegre. We quickly bought a photo album to carry the pictures of The Aegre being built and then decked, and our preparations on the northwest coast of Scotland to show our visitors. But then, with no visitor book, we asked people to sign inside the front cover of the photo album, then the back; then we had to add more pages.

Amazingly, the album largely survived the capsize, but most of the photos in it were substantially damaged. However, the covers and the pages we’d used as our Guestbook fared better and are reproduced below. Click on each image to enlarge. Sorry, water damage has made some names hard to read, but many are listed below.
