With Souters having rolled back the years for the annual Scott’s Selkirk celebrations last weekend, it seemed only apt to dig out a old photo from the same town for this week’s nostalgia piece.

Former Southern Reporter advertising manager Janis Cornwall has looked through our old glass-plate negatives – which hail from the 1940s onwards – and digitised them.

Sadly, we’ve no note of the date for this one or names for the people in it...but eagle-eyed readers may can figure it out for us. Do you know what was going on here, or when these pipers and men were walking the streets of Selkirk?
