Cover : paperback
Price : £7.99

Among the fifty or so photographs of yesteryear chosen by the author John Hood for Stenlake Publishing’s new book Old Lochwinnoch and Howwood, you will find Di Ambrosio’s Cafe in High Street, the Royal Oak pub on Main Street, the Viewfield Chair and Cabinet Works with their fleet of vans, and Jonny Mander’s Palace Cinema in Calder Street in the 1920s. Calder Street also brings memories of Jimmy Ward, the grocer and Matt Arthur’s bakery – who could have resisted his pies and ’fly cemeteries’ – and a Struther’s Table Waters lorry, makers of Scotland’s best lemonade. Look again at the front cover, someone may still have a twelve pounder in their garden! At Howwood there was Bowfield bleach works and the Academy – with its playground full of children – the Hotel, the Cross with the Dreadnought Buildings and the railway station..
