>>GALA MYSTERY:This photo of children enjoying gala day celebrations was sent in by William Risk from Westquarter. He acquiredit from a friend and is keen to find out more. Mr Risk said: "We really don't know

much about the photo. We think it is from the Laurieston or Westquarter

gala days in 1929 or 1930 but that is all. I am a member of a reminiscing group and I hope there is someone out there that can remember something about the images and shed some light on the gala

days and possibly who the king and queen were." If you have any information, contact William on (01324) 714331 or e_mailw_risk2000@yahoo.co.uk.
