This weeks Picture from the Past is from the Leader archive. It is from June 24, 1966 when the Mearns Leader and Kincardineshire Mail cost threepence.

The picture appeared under the ‘Stonehaven Notes’ on page 5 of the edition and was about the water inspection carried out.

The report highlighted that: “A party of 10 Stonehaven Town Councillors under Councillor J. Carnegie, water convener and accompanied by three officials visited the source of Stonehaven’s water.”

The picture had the following caption: “Provost J. H Stewart accepts a glass of water from Mr W. A Will, burgh surveyor, during Stonehaven Town Council’s water inspection.”
