THE smiling girls in this picture from 1960 are getting ready for the Linlithgow and Linlithgow Bridge Gala Day and one of them is taking a prominent role again this year - 52 years on.
From left to right the girls are Susan Hamilton, Myra Duncan, Lorraine Duff, Norma Readdie, Margaret Pudney, Rosemary McDonagh, Marion Laurie, and Margaret Aitken.
Marion, now Marion Sneddon, is crowning this year’s Gala Queen Fiona Tuckett tomorrow (Saturday), carrying on a tradition that spans the generations.
Thanks to Norma Greene who kindly submitted the photo.
