Duncan McPhail, from Canada, sent in this photograph of himself sitting on his uncle’s tractor in Belmont Street in 1948/49. His mother was brought up in Newtyle spending her early days on Burnmouth Farm and attending Newtyle School between 1915 and 1925.
Duncan was born in Greenock but for a good number of years he spent his summer holidays in Newtyle. His uncle was a gentleman by the name of Bob Bradford and he was a fruit farmer. His friend with whom he met up with each year was the son of the man who owned the dairy on Belmont St. He used to run down to the goods station about noon each day to watch the train come in from Dundee then over to the park to play on the swings and slide down chute. Happy memories!
