William Lyle of Mauchline has kindly allowed us to share his large collection of high quality glass slides and negatives. The history to this material is worthy of a few lines in itself.
The well documented book, Mauchline Town and District, by John Taylor Gibb is already reproduced in full on this web site. This was one of the first full books reproduced, and has proved a popular read. The book, published in 1911, is long out of print, and only available in reference libraries. Thanks to one of our local collectors, Mr. Robert Wallace, a copy was made available to scan, and reproduce.
The quality of the images in the book are more than worthy of note, considering the date of publication.
