Playing with the Gird

"This view looks to the west along Jamaica Street, toward India Street.  The people in this photo are too small for me to recognise.

Note the child with the gird, and one of the streets residents sitting on the step.  We always did this in Edinburgh and still do it here in Blairgowrie on a lovely morning."

Piper Thamson

"This photo was taken around 1963.  The van in the photo belonged to an old character from Loanhead.  He was known as 'Piper Thamson'.  He was an old soldier who made a living collecting cardboard for recycling, and collecting the old wooden tomato boxes which he sold to the local gardening nurseries"
