We’ve got another nostalgic gem of a photograph from our glass-negative archives for you this week.
As autumn brought with it the first of our frosty mornings this week, we hark back to warmer times during a 1950s summer in Hawick. Our photograph shows 12 women taking a paddle in the River Teviot, with one laughing lady taking more of an accidental dip. Perhaps they’re on a lunch break from a nearby mill?
We think it was probably taken during the 1950s, but hope our readers can be a little more precise. Do you recognise any of the ladies or landmarks in this photo? You can let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
