THIS week's Down Memory Lane photograph selection comes from former Ballingry resident Lesley Reid.

Lesley has been down in Kent for more than 40 years but has a number of old photographs she collected from her parents.

These include a picture of The Auld Shank, in Ballingry, taken in 1996; and also from the township is a pic taken at the church gates in the 1960s which were donated by the National Coal Board.

Also from the 1960s is a picture of traffic on the Glencraig Bridge and there is also a shot of people outside the Benarty Tavern in Crosshill taken in 1923.

If you have any old photographs you would like to see in our Down Memory Lane feature send them to or take them to the Times Office on a Monday or a Friday.
