Over the past three years people have been bringing in old photographs of Eyemouth and asking me to possibly produce a calender or a book of old photographs. The problem is it is such a minefield sorting out who’s copyright is who’s, although obviously some images here are too old to even worry about I do not wish to use anybody’s photographs illegally.
Therefore if anyone thinks I am using their image and they can prove ownership I will remove it, or if they dont mind I would give them a credit for use.
Some of these images I have cleaned and in time I will restore all the images I have been given if for no other reason but to archive a set of images for prosperity.
I will add more images to the blog whenever I can. If you have any images I could use please contact me.

If anyone can recognize anyone in these images or has any information please let me know and I will add it to the relative images.
I was really pleased when I got this image seeing as I live here.

Old Eyemouth fisherman “Auld Sands”
The house in the middle of the photo that connects the sole and the whale was demolished and when it fell into it’s cellars, they had to ship more rubble and soil in as it didn’t fill the hole it made… (smuggling at it’s best I would say). Courtsy of Elaine Peakman

Does anyone know anything about this photograph? I have been told it is possibly St Abbs

Packing the herring
Apparently the sign was deliberate to gain attention to the shop. The young lass there is Kath Rosie who lives just along from there now. The photo is of Dundee House where Bing (WM Collin & son) has his electrician’s workshop.
