Travel back in time at the Tolbooth today

Old treeTIME travel is being made possible at the Tolbooth again this weekend.

The Photographic Exhibition of Forres and District, Past and Present is on from 10am-4pm from Wednesday August 30 to Saturday, September 2, allowing visitors a glimpse of local history.

The third event this year has been organised by historians Ray Mills, Ross Dalziel and Franny Duncan, and volunteers at Forres Heritage Trust.

Ray, son of former Gazette photographer Digby Mills, Ross and Franny have thousands of pictures of the area in their collections from times gone by.

Each exhibition features portraits of people, places, pastimes, and professions on wall and table displays, as well as in organised folders.

The trio ensure previous visitors are kept interested by including never-been-seen-before snaps every time.

Two boards on this occasion will display Forres railway pictures and information, ahead of the grand opeing of the new station.

Entry is by donation but there is also an opportunity to buy copies of favourite photographs ... enjoy refreshments ... and get a guided tour of the town centre’s most important historical venue.

All proceeds from the exhibition are in aid of Tolbooth and Nelson’s Tower custodians, Forres Heritage Trust.
