One of Scotland’s oldest haulage firms is seeking contributions for a book to celebrate its centenary.

Hayton Coulthard Transport of Twynholm, Kirkcudbright was established in 1916 and hopes to mark its forthcoming business centenary during 2016 by preparing a special book and have launched an appeal for photographs or information to assist in the compilation of this volume.

In addition to the collection from its own archives, Hayton Coulthard Transport would be particularly interested in any material that relates to the earlier part of its history. This request also includes former associated companies such as Dunmhor Transport, Milhench and Coulthard and sub-contracted hauliers or owner-drivers.

To respect photographic copyright, Hayton Coulthard ask that any pictures submitted are by the original photographer only or alternatively, be accompanied by written permission from the copyright holder.

Digital files can be emailed to haytoncoulthard@gmail.com or posted to: Hayton Coulthard Transport, The Garage, Kirk Brae, Twynholm, Kirkcudbright. DG6 4NX. All posted material should including the sender’s name and address to permit return after use. Any images used in the book will be credited to the appropriate contributor.
