THIS image, taken some time in the 1940s, shows the Bo’ness Co-operative management board.

Pictured (L-R) are: back row - J. Black, S. Philips, H. Chisholm, J. Mann, ?; middle row - ?, M. Campbell, ?, J. Anderson, ?; front row - ?, D. Nimmo, A. Smart, J. Grant, J. Liddle.

Our thanks go to Archie Meikle and Rhoddy Chisholm for submitting the photo. Rhoddy’s late dad Hugh was among the group of pictured board members.

At that time, the co-operative was a huge establishment in Bo’ness, including a bakery, baker’s shop and a horse stable. Board figures represented different trades and professions.
