Tractor With Unusual Load! 1959

Tractor With Unusual Load! 1959

About this memory

(Driving the tractor) – Stanley Wilson.

(Clockwise from back left) – Wullie Watt, Cath Dunlop (his niece), and his daughters, Eileen, Catherine, and Margaret.

“Wullie Watt and family often holidayed in a friend’s house in Glenborrodale in the 1950s. Often they took family friends with them. In 1959 Wullie’s niece, Cath Dunlop, went with them. Wullie Ewart, a friend, took them in his van and left them there for two weeks – with no transport.

“In this photo Stanley is taking them in his tractor to see sheep-shearing.” – Margaret Munro (née Watt) [2008]
