With the Galloway Music Festival in full swing last week, we take a look back to the music festival in the 1970s. Here we have the pupils of Whithorn Primary School armed for battle with their recorders. Photographed are, back row: Fiona Adamson, Carol Murphy, Jean Cain, Jane Forlow, Hazel Miller, Isobel Mills, Roberta Heron, Janice Walker, Helen Smith, Mary Jolly. Front row are: Joyce Telfer, Lilith Johnston, Janis Edgar, Elspeth Laidlaw, Vivien Robertson, Sally Jupp and Anne Forsyth.
The picture of the steam train printed on March 8 brought back memories for Robert Ireland from Kilmarnock. Robert was in the picture and contacted the Gazette to say it was a special train from the Stevenson Locomotive Society that travelled from St Enoch’s, Glasgow, to Wigtown. The picture was taken at Newton Stewart station.
