Coursing down from the Devil's Beef Tub, the River Annan meanders through undulating agricultural land for 30 miles or so, before issuing into the Solway Firth. Stretching from the once-famous spa resort of Moffat in the north to Annan in the south, Annandale also embraces the former railway village of Beattock; Lochmaben, whose castle is claimed as the boyhood home of Robert the Bruce; Ecclefechan, birthplace of Thomas Carlyle; and Lockerbie, which since December 1988, has been associated throughout the world with one of the most terrible disasters in aviation history. This book celebrates the more everyday face of Annandale's towns and villages over the past 100 years. It details the changes occurring over this period - communities have expanded, communications have developed and tourism has become an increasingly important part of an economy. Twentieth century progress has wrought great change, as many of the images here will confirm, but other scenes contained in this book would be instantly familiar to people of generations long-since past. This delightful record will give enormous pleasure to lovers of the beautiful Scottish region.
