Curtis Welsh, from Melrose, kindly shared this old photograph with us, which he believes was taken by the late George Crooks, from Earlston, during the late 1960s.

He said: “Mr Crooks a was prodigious photographer and who, many years ago, passed away. He left a legacy of many local views and events. Many changes and proposed changes are taking place within Galashiels at the present time. In this landscape shot of Langlee, a lot has changed, with flats in the foreground and the Wester Langlee School no longer in existence, as well as changes at Netherdale.”
