The local agricultural show season begins next Wednesday in London Road Playing Fields with Stranraer Show. In our Galloway Past Picture selection this week we look back 60 years to the visit of the Queen to the show in 1955. In the photograph, the Machars recipients of long service medals were invited to be presented with their awards at the Stranraer Show instead of the Wigtown one so they could meet the Queen.
Many thanks to Jack Hunter for providing us with the photograph. Jack is in the picture on the right and beside the Queen is the late Lord Stair.
