Grandad plooan, at the Burnhouse Longhope

This was my grand father wae the ploo it was taken by a minister here at the time. James Thomson was a a forthright man (to say the least!) and told the Rev he was a dam fool yes a dam fool to be wasting his camera on such nonsense.
James always repeated every statment just to make very sure that it had maximum impact!!.
How lucky we were that the minister was such a dam fool!!.
