Galloway Past

With Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations just about to get into full swing, this week we look back to 1897, when Queen Victoria was celebrating her Diamond Jubilee.

This wonderful picture was handed into the Galloway Gazette offices by Mr Robb from Newton Stewart and shows a large crowd gathered in Dashwood Square for the festivities. The mode of dress may have changed dramatically in the intervening 115 years but the buildings remain much the same.
