Wonderful photos from “Old Dallington”

A lady who recently bought a copy of our book – 6 Miles from Everywhere – has kindly sent me some photos of times gone by.
Her great-grandfather was Angus Henderson who was the local policeman in Dallington – very handsome man.
The little boy in the photograph on page 22 of the book is Robert Henderson, son of Angus and one little girl, possibly both are his sisters.
