New Cumnock Golf Club

I am grateful to Robert Scott for contributing photos of New Cumnock Golf Club and its members from a few years ago.

Craigdullyeart Hill to Ellergoffe Knowe

I was visited by a friend who wanted to see what the old road to Kirkconnel looked like now (July 2016).  I was under the impression that the road beyond the iron gate was closed due to the opencast and the conveyor belt.  Apologies for the hurried nature of the photos.  Also, if you decide to go and look yourself, the road beyond Glen Farm is ‘difficult’.

Beasts of the Lagoons

I decided I had better have another walk over the Lagoons last week and even turned back to get my camera.  It seems that the lagoons have been overrun by beasts and I enclose what I saw.

The Burning Moon Effect

Last week on the night after the much publicised ‘burning moon’ I was attracted by the redness of the night sky at the back of my house.  I took a few photos but realised that the sky was even redder when looked at from Mansfield Road.  I enclose some of the photos.

Unknown Football Team

George Gilbert sent me this photo of an unknown football team.  I would be grateful if anyone who knows the team and the year could contact me.

I have had an email from Roddy Currie who has identified all the players and information on the photo.   This  photo  of the  Glens   was    taken  at  Connel Park on the 27th  Jan 1957,  5th round –  Scottish Cup
The  score   was  2 – 2 and we  lost  the replay  at  Kilsyth  on 10th  Feb  1957, 3 – 1.   The  team   in  the photo are:
Murray,   McNaught,  Carruthers,  Jackson,    Stirling,   Templeton,
            Cathcart,  Donnelly, Thorburn,  McCulloch,   Graham.

 

Mason Avenue

Last week I turned into Mason Avenue and was surprised at the change to the street.

The Lagoons in April 2014

Last April I took a walk across the lagoons from the Castle to the Leggate.  I took my camera with me and these are the photos I took.  Unfortunately, for various reasons I did not put them on the website at that time  but here they are.

Accordion Band

Stuart Brown has sent me two photos of an accordion band performing at Cumnock Carnival and New Cumnock Gala Day in 1963.  Any information on this band would be welcome.

More Photos From Alex Jess

Alex sent me a lot of photos last year and I have just discovered that I misplaced some of them.  Here they are in Alex own words.

New Cumnock Flower Show

I am grateful once again to Patrick and Mary Dornan for the following photos which I believe were taken at a New Cumnock Flower Show in the late 1960’s.

 

Dux Medal Boards from the Town School

Robert Hart has very kindly donated photos of the Dux Medal Boards from the Town School.  I understand that these boards that show the names of Dux Medallists are no longer displayed in New Cumnock Primary School and are in storage.

New Windmill

A new windmill has been erected above High Park Farm.  While taking photos of it from what used to be Farden Avenue I thought the area might be of interest to those of you who no longer reside in New Cumnock.

Trotter Family Photos

I have received two photos from the Trotter Family collection and a link to the Trotter collection on Flickr courtesy of  D’Arcy Hande whose grandmother Mary Trotter was born in New Cumnock.

One is of a young men’s group, taken ca 1900-1905, I expect.  It may be a Baptist group, and possibly a choir, since the man standing in the middle, Michael Donnachie, was quite musical, I am told.  On the far right, marked (unfortunately) by an X is Martin Trotter (1881-1907), my grandmother’s brother who emigrated to the U.S. and died shortly thereafter at Pittsburgh.  (The Martin Trotter who most who live there now will remember was actually a younger half-brother, named after his deceased sibling.)  I wonder how many of the others your viewers might be able to identify.

New Cumnock young mens group - possibly Bapt Church

The other cabinet portrait of the four young people is probably a family group from New Cumnock.  At first, I thought they might be Trotter relations, but I am now less convinced of that.  Can any of your viewers identify these folk?

Class Reunion

photo copy

“ We Happy Band of Brothers “ with apologies to Shakespeare and the “ girls “ who comprised 80% of the class.
Class of 3AB 1953-54 New Cumnock J.S. School ‘ mid term ‘ reunion.
Last Sept., when we met for our annual reunion, we decided to hold a mid term reunion to accommodate anyone, who for one reason or another, increasingly age related given our advancing years, had not been able to attend last time.
The event this time was held in the Dumfries Arms Hotel and those present were Jessie Clegg, Jim Findlay,John Nairn,Morag McKechnie, Margaret Boyle, Isobel McEwan, Jean Watson, Molly Grey, Grace Fergusson and Jean Fitzsimmons.
These are all maiden names where appropriate and in no particular order and will afford their contemporaries who have not seem them for some time an opportunity to put faces to names.
Regrettably I could not attend, having an appointment at the Orthopaedic Dept. Ayr Hospital, which sort of underlines the rationale of the thinking outlined above.

The Inhabitants of Afton Road

George Gilbert very kindly sent me a list of the inhabitants of Afton Road at the time he lived there in the late 1930’s until the early 1950’s.  People did move in and out over this time and the names represent a snapshot of the inhabitants there around the late 1940’s.

P1000136

Here are inhabitants of Afton Crescent as it was known then just after the war, as far as my memory serves me.  The even nos. were replaced by consecutive odd nos. when it changed to Afton Rd.  I don’t quite know why this was done unless they intended at some point in time to build in the empty opposite fields and don’t know why it was ever called a Crescent in the first place since it was a linear development.

Connelpark – where nobody locked their doors

If you have not already seen Connelpark – where nobody locked their doors by Alex Jess it is worth a look.  Several characters from the past are mentioned along with several photos.

Above is a picture of Class 3AB Town School circa 1950-51.
Last month we held our annual reunion at Lochside for the 22nd. time having  first reconvened in 1991 on the occasion of the 50th. anniversary of beginning  school together in 1941-42.
This year we were given a tour of the new Town School with all it’s  impressive new facilities and a great deal of discussion followed amongst  ourselves trying to identify the various class rooms we used to inhabit and the  teachers we encountered therein.
Some of the current staff were a bit bemused when we referred to missing  items such as the pegs in the cloakroom for our gas masks and the adhesive tape  on the windows to counteract bomb blast, not to forget the iconic map in almost  every room with it’s large red areas of the then British Empire.
Nine of us were present, all three boys and six girls as we still  euphemistically refer to ourselves. The Headmaster John Miller and English  teacher Ivy Baird are long gone but not sure about gym teacher K. McPate.
This  class was a distillation as it were of two classes, which are both featured on  the photo album of Town School – N0s.75 and 76. There are names which occur  simultaneously in two of the three pictures. The reason for this was, that in  our time there were sometimes two intakes per year and Primary Classes lasted  for 8 months as opposed to a full year, consequently there took place a merging  of two classes in our first year of secondary, the older class, which was  entitled 1X, being retained in a holding unit, for want of a better description,  for a few months until the younger class P7 finished.Both classes were then  merged and pupils were streamed, as happened in these pre – comprehensive times,  into the various AB and C classes – AB being languages French and Latin and C  technical subjects. Like the proverbial curate’s egg this system had it’s good  and not so good elements though I suspect the jury is still out on whether the  system which followed offered any great improvement.
Notice  the fact that girls far outnumber boys which perhaps supports the theory that  girls at this age are cleverer than boys.
One  noticeable change for the better is that most of the girls in the picture were  perfectly capable of going on to University, as happens nowadays, whereas none  did, opting instead for a variety of reasons for vocational courses or immediate  employment. I suppose this is more of a welcome societal change rather than as a  result of changes to the educational system which followed.
On a personal note and for the record I am grateful to New Cumnock J.S.  School or Town School as it was popularly known for providing me with a very  good basic education, and to the village and community of New Cumnock for giving  me what I like to think are a decent set of values.

New Cumnock Community Action Plan

A meeting was called inviting residents to attend the Open Day Event today, Saturday 28th September 2013 and to vote on a Community Action Plan for New Cumnock.  The following photos and handouts tell the story.  It seemed a very successful day and well done to the organisers for making the effort.

 

Lagoons Maintenance

Yesterday, Wednesday 25th September, I was walking on the lagoons and noticed some tracks and noise in the distance.  It seems that the ecology of the lagoons is maintained after all.  The water that flows under the wee bridge that links the lagoons to Connelpark was being impeded by a build up of stones, gravel and silt where it flows into the Connel Burn.  This in turn was creating a build up of gravel and silt back to the lagoons and affecting drainage.  The photos show the work undertaken.

Alex Jess 3

Alex has kindly donated a further group of photos to the website, consisting of personal photos and a group taken during a winter walk across the lagoons.

The Dux Medal 

Last year a relation of mine, whom I will call a wonderful lady from Lanarkshire, gave me a Dux Medal that had been obtained at a sale to raise hospital funds.

Dux Medals are the prizes given in Scotland to outstanding pupils who have excelled in academic studies at school.  There are therefore, not many of these medals in existence and I had never seen one, let alone come close to winning one!

William Arthur was a wealthy farmer who farmed Wellhill Farm and married Elizabeth Houston of Garclaugh.  They had no children and when William died in 1894 his bequest was to endow the building of a new Free Church in New Cumnock now known as the Arthur Memorial Church.  He also left funds for half a guinea to be given at Christmas to the needy pensioners of the town.

The other part of his bequest was for the funding of a Dux Medal for pupils of the Bank School and New Cumnock Higher Grade School.  A small bursary was also included with this prize.

Dux_0004

The photo does not do justice to the actual medal.  You will see that William Arthur’s face appears on the medal and his date of birth and death.

Dux2_0006

The reverse side of the medal gives the winner and school.  Who was Robert Johnston?  I believe there was more than one Robert Johnston in New Cumnock in 1940-41.  If anyone has information on the winner of this Dux Medal I will be grateful if they could let me know.

The hallmark on the medal indicates it was made in Birmingham in 1940 possibly by Bowden & Co.

I would like to thank Mr Richard Bain for providing me with information on William Arthur.

 

Burns Supper Ticket and Programme

My apologies to Mrs Dusty Matthews for assuming she was a male!  I have now amended the information to reflect this.  I should have remembered Dusty Springfield.

Dusty Matthews has donated a ticket and programme of the Burns Supper her grandmother attended in 1966 while on a visit to New Cumnock.

Old Postcards

I am very grateful to Dusty Matthews of Florida who is related to the Lees family of New Cumnock.  Her grandmother visited in the 60’s and also received the two postcards from Betty Lees.  Dusty kept these items as they were valued by her grandmother.

The Castle (800 x 520)

This postcard of the Castle is from the mid 1960’s.  On the right is the old Police Station that was demolished around 1965.

Afton Bridgend (800 x 519)

The BP sign of McKechnie’s filling station can be seen further down the road on the right, now the site of new houses.  Also, at the bottom of the road you can just see the telephone box which is no longer there and there are no houses either on the left.

 

Glen Afton Park

The following photographs were taken at Glen Afton Caravan Park which occupies the site of the old Glenafton Sanatorium.  The views are stunning which accounts for the number of caravans on the site.  There are more photos, information and stories to follow.

Ford Model T Tourer

CNV00003 (816 x 544)

The photo belongs to Bill Brown and is of his father William Brown who in the 50’s was under manager at Bank No 6 pit.
The car was bought in Manchester, England where it was manufactured  about 1920 . It was bought by  William  with the intention of providing a special “taxi” service from the station to the sanatorium where William’s wife  Agnes Wilson (Newmilns) had been a nurse.

The photo was taken inside Tweedie’s Garage just as it had been driven from Manchester but the car was normally garaged at the Leggat where Bill Brown lived.

It looks as though William Brown is wearing a double breasted overcoat as per a chauffeur…. and the cloth cap.  The car is believed to be a Ford Model T Tourer probably built about 1919/20. The van that is just visible in the background was Davey (?) Scoular from Bridgend.

Afton Water by George Houston

I was really pleased to discover a small print of the painting Afton Water by George Houston(1869-1947).  I doubt if many people in New Cumnock are aware of this painting or George Houston.  He was born in Dalry and was a prolific landscape painter whose work sells for around £2K – £9K.  The painting was made prior to 1912.  Please click on the photo to enlarge.
