This week’s trip down memory lane follows on from the picture published in our Nostalgia section on April 4.
Like that image of the Howat family at their butcher’s shop in Port Bannatyne, it was contributed by reader Peter Hawkes and shows Peter’s mother Winnie (nee Howat). This time she’s seen with a prime specimen of the island’s fine dairy cattle at the Bute Agricultural Society’s annual summer show.
If this image, or any of those published in our Nostalgia section, stirs any memories of bygone days on Bute, we’d love to hear from you. If you have any old pictures showing the people, places or events of the island in the past, you can email them to us by clicking on the email address at the top of this story.
Alternatively, you can send hard copies to us at The Buteman, 5 Victoria Street, Rothesay, Isle of Bute PA20 0AJ. Please include a SAE for the return of photographs.
