One of 18 images to be discussed at drop in workshops at the Kirkcudbright Parish Church Hall on Wednesday, 6th August, Thursday 7th August and Friday 8th August between 2.00-5.00pm.

Working with the Kirkcudbright History Society, the organisers of the Britain from Above - Borders project are hoping to hear reminiscences, memories and insights about aspects of the town which are so clear in the photographs and yet may be now changed or gone. The accounts inspired by the photographs will be noted and compiled into a booklet.



The enlarged pictures show both the whole town from several hundred feet as well as more detailed views taken at lower level such as the adjacent photograph of the Harbour Square in 1947, when the fair was in town. There are also views of the Gibb Hill Air Sea Rescue base in 1947, and earlier views of the St. Mary Street / High Street area taken in the 1930s.
