THIS week’s Peep at the Past comes to us courtesy of exiled Bo’nessian Frank Watson.

The picture was taken on Fair Day in either 1950 or 51 and shows a group of friends outside the Hippodrome Cinema on North Street.

Pictured from the left are Tom White, John Rink, Bert Smith (piper), Andrew Cairns and Frank Watson.

Frank was raised in Grangepans and Grahams-dyke and moved to Michigan with his family in 1963.

He is a regular reader of the Journal and Gazette thanks to family friends John and Isobel Watt who regularly send him a copy. If you have an old picture which you think our readers might want to see then hand it into the office at 114 High Street, Linlithgow or email it to editorial@journal
