Water trip356 viewsHelensburgh town councillors and officials at the opening of the Sinclair Street water pump house on June 10 1926. This was part of the annual inspection of the waterworks, and the company then went on to Glen Fruin but "on arrival here a heavy fall of rain made it undesirable to visit the source of supply, and the usual game of pitch and toss having been played and refreshments partaken of, the journey continued to Aberfoyle. Once there luncheon was served in the Bailie Nicol Jarvie Hotel". Image donated to the Heritage Trust by John Stirling whose father James N.Stirling is in centre of the back row. His father was the burgh surveyor and water engineer, taking up the post in 1912 and continuing until 1946.Aug 23, 2020
