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 was a prodigious photographer and who, many years ago, passed away. He left a legacy of many local views and events. This one is a winter image of the Tin Brig at Earlston which once carried the railway over the A68 to the south of Earlston and which put a real twist in the road. A stump of the right hand side parapet is still visible today at the entrance to the lay by which is formed by the old road.”
