Old shots you have recog­nised

The Galloway News - - WEEKENDTIC­KET -

The old pic­ture fea­ture we have been run­ning in the pa­per for the past few months has cre­ated a lot of in­ter­est.

Many of our read­ers have been in touch with Ali­son Burgess at the Ewart Li­brary in Dum­fries to give her in­for­ma­tion and the names of the peo­ple and places that have been fea­tured.

The lo­cal stud­ies depart­ment at the li­brary is dig­i­tally ar­chiv­ing thou­sands of old Gal­loway News neg­a­tives and is ask­ing for help from read­ers.

The li­brary ser­vice of­fered its thanks to ev­ery­one who has been in touch.

A se­lec­tion of the shots that peo­ple have been able to iden­tify are pic­tured here.

Lo­cal stud­ies of­fi­cer Ali­son can be con­tacted at the Ewart Li­brary, Cather­ine Street, Dum­fries, DG1 1JB.

Tele­phone 01387 260307. Email ali­son. [email protected] dum­gal.gov.uk.

Look out for more pic­tures next week.
