    Hey Stuart, I am not sure if you will see this but I just want to say thank you very much! Your collection is amazing and I have loved looking through the old pictures and maps of Westerhailes and the surrounding areas, I was born 1980 and grew up in Hailesland Gardens from birth, and as I have got older I have started to look into the history of Westerhailes and honestly your archive of pictures, maps and memories have been so amazing looking through and helped massively with piecing together other information I have came across, and might I add you have the best records I can find so far. But yea I just want to say thank you very much! Michael
