A family affair at Carsphairn
The Cuthbertson family of Craigenbay, New Galloway, had something worth celebrating at last weekend’s Carsphairn centenary show, when Bert Cuthbertson (right), landed the confined championship and the reserve supreme championship in the Blackface sheep section while his wife Isobel took the McLellan Cup for most points in the industrial section.
Also in the picture is son Charles who helped his father with his entries. See show reports and pictures on pages 8, 9 and 15.

No need for Barbara Woodhouse here. Collies, some of which had completed in the adjacent trials, are walked in their show class. Third from right is veteran Jock Murray from Sanquhar, who first cycled to Carsphairn Show 62 years ago.
