Post­ing a mes­sage from his­tory

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

WHO WOULD have thought that a col­lec­tion of post­cards and photos could give such a clear his­tor­i­cal tour de­pict­ing ‘The Chang­ing Face of In­ver­aray’?

Thanks to Novem­ber’s guest speaker Ken McTag­gart, In­ver­aray and Dis­trict His­tory So­ci­ety mem­bers were in­trigued by all the changes that had taken place over the cen­turies.

Ken’s pa­tient re­search and keen eye for de­tail re­vealed even the small­est changes in build­ings, trees, ve­hi­cles and land devel­op­ment which gave him enough in­for­ma­tion to be able to date the va­ri­ety of post­cards col­lected over the years.

Ac­tiv­ity dur­ing WWII was clearly de­picted with the aid of aerial photographs, some of which were taken by the Luft­waffe.

De­lighted

So­ci­ety mem­bers were de­lighted to be joined by a num­ber of guests and new mem­bers.

Well known lo­cal singer, mu­si­cian and Gaelic speaker Ethel MacCal­lum will be en­ter­tain­ing ev­ery­one with ‘Songs of In­ver­aray – Old and New’ on the evening of Tues­day De­cem­ber 5 in the Ni­coll Hall.
