The Oban Times - - Community News -

KIL­BRAN­DON SWI kicked off the new ses­sion with ‘Old Oban in Pho­to­graphs’. The speaker was Bob McCul­loch, as­sisted by Char­lie Drum­mond.

Born and brought up in Oban and de­lighted to share some of the history of the town and the sur­round­ing ar­eas, Bob and Char­lie gave mem­bers a glimpse into what life was like in the past through a slideshow of old pho­to­graphs ac­quired from var­i­ous sources, along with a very in­sight­ful com­men­tary.

Mem­bers were fas­ci­nated to see old photos of the At­lantic Bridge, old Eas­dale with a steamer com­ing through, Ar­gyll Square, the Hy­dro­pathic Ho­tel and much more. It was a truly in­ter­est­ing and plea­sur­able evening.
