There are some fabulous advertisements - look at the price of this chair from Reynolds, McCulloch & Boyle, house furnishers of Glasgow - £7! Furniture of personality, eh? Hope its not truculent or has sociopathic tendencies - prefer happy furniture myself!
Rob Roy (1671-1734) was a Scottish Robin outlaw and folk hero whose exploits were made famous in a novel by Sir Walter Scott. He lived at Inversnaid on Loch Lomond (just in case you were wondering!).
What a fabulous book you have there, I remember holidaying in the Trossachs a lot as a child, it's a lovely area!
What great pics! We love the Trossachs, and the QE National Park above Aberfoyle. That charabanc excursion looks like fun!
Sorry Liz but I always laugh when anyone mentions the Trossachs!! I cant remember which comedian used to joke about it but it tickles me every time I hear it.
Gosh, Liz. You find the BEST stuff!
What an amazing find, such a charming book ~ Sarah x
I love the illustration on the cover of this little book. What a great find, and interesting too, to see the old photos. Yes, I'd say that carriage is very overloaded! It is always fun to see old advertisements with their very outdated prices isn't it. Thanks for sharing this book!
Great book LIz and thanks so much for leaving such a lovely comment about my feature at Must Love Junk...Hope you have a wonderful week!
I love second-hand bookshop discoveries!
Great pictures. It's the adverts I love! x
The book look quite interesting, I knew the story of Rob Roy and I love the name!
