Overview

Galashiels Through Time by Sheila Scott

It is doubtful that the appearance of a town has changed as much as Galashiels has in the last ten years. Once a town at the centre of the Scottish Tweed and Woollen industry, very few reminders of that age can now be seen. Gala is now a town which concentrates mainly on retail and service industries. However, Galaleans continue to be very proud of their history and roots with many returning annually to the town to celebrate the Braw Lads Day. With the former Scottish College of Textiles now a university campus a new generation of students worldwide come to Galashiels, continuing to be educated in the textile and clothing industry. The images in the book trace the changes that have taken place in Galashiels over a number of years and will hopefully evoke memories for many. It is also a record of what is happening now within this Scottish Borders town.
