Lets stop for a second to admire this lovely photo. Blantyre family, the Watsons dressed in all their Edwardian finery and Sunday best.
This is a probable day out or celebration, and set in a leafy, fern covered spot in Auchentibber. Shared here by Jim Cochrane, the photo is pre World War One, a time before the huge conflict, the faces not knowing what was just around the corner in terms of war and of the future of Auchentibber, then a busy, populated hamlet.
