A step back in time to old Crossmichael
Exhibition in village hall was hugely popular
Around 300 people took the chance to travel back in time at Crossmichael over the weekend.
The Wee Book Hoose team organised “A Photograph Tells A Thousand Words” in the village hall, which featured a range of old photos.
It proved hugely successful with people travelling from Edinburgh and the south of England to attend and folk meeting old pals they hadn’t seen for 30 years.
The event, held on Friday and Saturday, also saw the launch of a living history project.
This will see the creation of a digital history of Crossmichael using a combination of archive material and stories, pictures and video recordings of residents.
All generations of the village will be involved and it’s being partially funded by a successful bid for LEADER funding.
