Banks & bankers, shops & inhabitants, Cumnock Chronicle & Jack Hill - 1961
One of our finds when we were invited by Caroline Paterson, the Cumnock Chronicle editor, to visit their offices in Ayr Road to look at and choose some books and documents before their recent move to new offices in Ardrossan.
This original A4 document was produced by the Chronicle in 1961 and contains extensive information on Cumnock Shops, Banks and personalities up until this date. It contains excerpts from a historical series in the Cumnock Chronicle and was mostly written and researched by Jack Hill of Hartfield Villa in Ayr Road.
