An unidentifed boat arrifing at North Haven in the 1940s.

This comes from a collection of 40 images, found in the archive of the island's library, is accredited to Norman Wylie Moore, about whom nothing is known. The images date from the late 1940s, possibly documenting the West Wales Field Society's visit in 1947, or relating to the Wildlife Conservation Special Committee (chaired by Dr. Julian Huxley) which helped to recognise Skomer as a potential nature reserve in the same year.

At this time, the island the was being farmed by Reuben and Betty Codd.
