Local historian Ken MacTaggart revealed more of his carefully collected and researched photographs of the old town at this month’s meeting of Inveraray History Society.

Ken’s presentation, ‘Inveraray – People and Places’, brought back memories for many older members and turned his talk into an interactive and lively evening. By enlarging the images, he was able to highlight details, not immediately obvious, in his photographs which in turn encouraged further information from the floor. Ken’s talk was enhanced by photographs taken from a superb collection by George Washington Wilson, photographer to Queen Victoria.

An excellent suggestion by one of the members highlighted the need to collate the valuable information collected by Ken, whilst people with these memories are still with us.

The next meeting will be in the Nicoll Hall on Tuesday February 5 at 7.30pm when Sue Furness will speak about ‘Trowels and Tea Towels: The Hidden Heritage Project’. Everyone welcome.
