Zooming in on a photo scanned in good detail, here are a couple of carters at Barnhill in the 1920’s. The Barnhill Tavern is out the picture to the right. The road is Bardykes Road looking north.
Some dating evidence. The whitewashed cottage (Aggie Bains) is different from today , still with part of the gable sticking out in the street in this picture, so the date of the photo is before 1929 when the road widening occurred. Looking at the shadows, this appear to have been taken one late morning. The trees and foliage in the background suggesting between April and October.
In the background you can see “Glenartney” or more commonly known to us all as “The Cottage Hospital”.
