Galloway Past Picture

editorial image

Galloway Gazette reader Faith Marshall, formerly from Newton Stewart but now living in Kilmarnock, is appealing for help in identifying the 
people in this old photograph. She writes: “Having read The Galloway Gazette for many years, I 
have often seen old photos published with request for anyone who can name those in the photo. I 
have found an old photo among old family things in the attic which says on the back ‘Kirkcolm 
Hogmanay Dance at midnight 1951’.

“Can any readers help with any names? I recognise one or two as family members of mine who have now passed on and so I can’t ask them. My mum is the lady in the plain dark dress at the bottom right looking off to the side.”

If you have the names for anyone pictured, please telephone Louise Kerr on 01671404767 or email
