Picture from the past

This week’s picture from the past was brought into the office of our sister title, the Deeside Piper, by David Abernethy.

It is of Queen Victoria’s Durris Jubilee Procession, and shows them travelling over the Slug Road from Stonehaven to Banchory. It was taken on June 20, 1987. Mr Abernethy believes the young man on the horse to be an ancestor of his. If you have any old pictures of the Mearns or Kincardineshire, please send them into news@mearnsleader.com, or pop by the office.
