THIS bustling harbour scene, taken at Bo’ness, shows several vessels. The town clock can be seen in the background, but it is unknown which year this was taken.

The picture is one of several contained in a book, ‘‘Views of Bo’ness’’, which came to our attention last year, thanks to Russell Henderson.

His granddaughter was given the book - thought to have been bought in a secondhand shop - when visiting family in Devon.

It had been published by W. W. Broome of the Bo’ness Journal office, but there was no indication of a year.
