Digging into the archives of our sister publication, The Scotsman, we turned up this Bo’ness Children’s Fair picture from 1963.

Queen-elect Margaret Donaldson is showing her dress for the town’s big day.

The picture is not captioned but, in all probability, young Margaret is showing the dress to members of the Fair committee.

No doubt older readers will be able to identify the two gentlemen.

Margaret and her sister, Helen, queen in 1958, are the only siblings to have been Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival queens. Helen’s daughter, Hannah, was Fair Queen from St. Mary’s Primary School in 1998.
