This week’s picture from the past appeared in the Mearns Leader in December, 1965.
It was when Santa was a welcome guest at the children’s party held by Bervie O.E.S. in the Crown Hotel.
His sack was quickly emptied as he distributed his gifts to the wide-eyed and happy youngsters.
If you have an old picture of the Mearns and Kincardineshire you think our readers would enjoy, send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
