This page I will dedicate to some great old photos of Scotland and her people

1914-18 and these Kilties are celebrating in style

 A well known couple, from Peebles way. Coal Jean and Coal Geordie delivered the coal (perhaps not surprisingly by their names). Is that a pipe Jean is smoking? Guess it must have been a popular pastime among women in Peebles at that time! 

Vespa Club in Edinburg  these lads are making their way up Ramsay Lane which is one of the steepest streets in Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Vespa Club was the first scooter club of any kind in Scotland. It was formed early in 1954. This is one of its first 'ride outs' By 1955 membership had risen to 30!
