An appeal for old photographs

I recently discovered a number of old photographs of events and scenes from Strathpeffer and district from before the second world war and some of them before the great war of 1914. Margaret Spark kindly agreed for me to digitise these old photographs and add them to the village web site for everyone to see. There must be hundreds of other old pictures of the village that are now fading and gathering dust in houses up and down the Strath, and it seems a crying shame that many of them will end up in landfill or recycled without ever seeing the light of day again. Please drop me an email if you would like me to add any old images that you may have to our village website for all to see. I can either scan them or take a digital photograph of them. Hopefully this will become a treasured resource for villagers not only now, but in the future, and serve as a reminder to us all of how things used to be in times gone by.

Apologies for not synchronising the two images in the slider very well, it’s almost impossible now that the shops are blocked by trees. The glass canopied Spa pump room is conspicuous by its absence with it’s square clock tower and the road in the 1920’s looks in far better condition that the one does 100 years later.
