A photograph of the Queen has been unveiled in Peebles’ Chambers Institution.

It shows the monarch signing the visitors’ book in the institution’s council chamber in July 2013.

The black-and-white photograph, which was taken by local photographer Helen Barrington, was unveiled last Thursday by Gilbert Archer, Vice-Lord Lieutenant of Tweeddale.

The photograph is a gift to the institution trustees from the Buchan family and the John Buchan Museum to mark the Queen’s visit to Peebles and to the new museum.

Prior to the unveiling, in the presence of Councillor Graham Garvie and Sir David Younger, museum trustees and members of the family, the picture was covered with the personal standard of the Governor-General of Canada, David Johnston, who is the museum’s patron.

Ian Buckingham, chairman of the John Buchan Story Museum, said: “This is a wonderful reminder of the visit of the Queen, which was such a great day for Peebles,” adding: “Visitors to the museum are always interested in the details of the royal visit, as well as the Canadian memorabilia on display, which so impressed the Queen.”
