Cuthbert Spencer of Tighnabruaich
Gardener, Photographer and Lad o’Pairts
by Geoff Newton
Anyone who spent holidays in Tighnabruaich during the first half of the C20th would have been familiar with the photographic postcards sold in the shops to send home to friends and relatives. There were local views, some including houses and people could say, ‘This is where we stayed’; many were of steamers in which visitors might have sailed. There were also photographs of local Regattas and notable yachts.
