“The paper’s glass plate negative collection is an absolute treasure trove of nostalgia. Here’s hoping these photos bring back happy memories.”

A bazaar at St James’ Church, a dinner for Heugh Dancing Club, members of the Salvation Army and a Japanese fancy dress event are featured here.

“Today, as usual, I’m appealing for further information on all of the pictures. I need dates, places and, above all, names,” said Susan.
