Duncan is one of the many generous contributors to the Trust's archive. As well as recording his earliest memories of the town he allowed us to scan a number of his personal photographs giving glimpses of life growing up in Gainswood. These included a wonderful set of pictures of a coronation street party, the boys brigade and Peartree School. He also had a collection of early postcards of the town which you can view below.
