Post cards from Montrose
A surprising number of people had come to Montrose to retire after holidaying here all their lives, while others moved with their parents in the 50s and 60s.
Some memories were not of Montrose beach but of army leave sleeping under the stars on Bondi beach and others of picking up translucent white stones on Discovery beach, where Columbus landed in Jamaica.
One lady remembered coming to Montrose in February to look for a house with her parents, they stayed in a caravan and the weather was so cold the gas froze in the pipes!
others remembered sand castle competitions, hundreds of people arriving at the station and the weather always being warm!
Our completed album of memories will be kept at Angus Archives at the Hunter Library Restenneth, Forfar, Angus DD8 2SZ.Phone:+44 1307 468644
