From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Mystery Photos

We think these great photographs were taken for an exhibition as they were amongst a quantity of large prints within mounts.  The name on the back of many of them is JH Millar.  We would like to obtain more information about the photos such as when they were taken and whether they were part of a larger exhibition.  We’d also like to find out more about JH Millar, what this photographer’s association with Wester Hailes was and what they went to work on after this.

 You can see a selection of these pictures as well as photographs from the Sentinel and West Edinburgh Times at an exhibition being held at the WHALE Arts Centre.  The exhibition launches this evening from 5pm- 7pm and will be on show at the WHALE  until October.  This event is part of the Big West Fest week which is WHALE’s on site festival, linking people in the area to the Festivals by bringing a wee bit of it out West. 

For more information about the Big West Fest week and the exhibition contact WHALE on 0131 458 3267, or call in and see them at 30 Westburn Grove, Wester Hailes, Edinburgh.
