Old Newton Stewart

Author : David Pettigrew
Cover : paperback
Price : £10.00

As well as the streets and buildings of Newton Stewart, Creebridge and Minnigaff, this book contains pictures of events such as the acrimonious Creebridge Eviction (a church dispute of the early twentieth century), curling and skating on the River Cree during the freeze of February 1895, a visit by an aircraft to the town in 1913, and a floral fete featuring magnificently decorated bicycles. There's a picture of the aftermath of the train crash of February 1910, as well as the station (and a local bus) during more run-of-the-mill times. Nearby Blackcraig, where lead mining was established in the late eighteenth century, is featured too, along with Palnure, where boats transporting lead ore were moored.
