"Old St Boswells" Republished
Old St Boswells by Jean Lawrie
In 1974, Jean Lawrie published "Old St Boswells", an excellent book about St Boswells Parish including Old Melrose, St Boswells and Lessudden, its customs and traditions, travel, village roads and buildings, sports played, public health, the police and some notable people.
Christine Lawrie has made some corrections to the text, retyped it, provided updates, added currency conversions and it is now a 100 page book in standard octavo format, with thicker card covers. More importantly she has indexed it, and that makes it more useful as a reference work. There is a fold-out layout of the old roads and the buildings on each road to help the reader identify them.
Christine is generously donating the proceeds from the new book to one of Jean's favourite charities, Dr Graham's Homes in Kalimpong.
Price £10 plus postage (1st class £1.09, 2nd Class 92p UK, Europe including Eire £2.19, Rest of World £3.50 airmail, £1.89 surface mail.)
Available by post from Mrs C Lawrie, 8 Jean Lawrie Court, St Boswells TD6 0BF.
