Sanquhar show revived after 66 years

SCOTLAND gets to see the Sanquhar show again after an interval of 66 years. The show collapsed in the Thirties when the committee agreed to have a beer tent in defiance of one of the main exhibitors, who was a member of the Temperance Society. The show starts on 9 August.
