    Hi
    I hope you are all well.
    I have added some photos to the Recently Added section of the BHPG website. http://benarty.org.uk/gallery3/index.php/Recently-Added/
    Most of these photos come from John Ross, formally of Kirkland Park, Ballingry so thank you John.
    If any of you have any old photos you’d like to share with others on the website please get in touch as I can scan photos you have or you can email them to me but get in touch and we’ll work something out. You can get in touch with me using the contact button on the website.
    Regards


  • Changes and Additions

    If you have visited the BHPG website recently you may have noticed the video gallery wasn’t working properly as a result I have changed the video player and the videos now work fine. I have also added two new videos, Ballingry, Lochore and Crosshill Children’s Gala 1955 and a video of the Queen visiting the Lurgi Gas Plant.
    I hope you enjoy viewing these new additions and if you have any suggestions or comment please get in touch.
    Many thanks
    Mike


  • New Additions to BHPG Website

    “COWDENBEATH & KELTY ECHO”

    13 editions of the Cowdenbeath & Kelty Echo from 1900 have been added to the website and can be viewed by going to the menu button ‘A Wee Keek Back’ and then selecting Cowdenbeath & Kelty Echo Test Pages then select the edition you require.

    These few digitised copies from the reels of 35mm Microfilms of this newspaper have been added to this site as an experiment, to find out if these PDF files are easily viewed by the people using this site.

    Unfortunately, they are not searchable, but the reader should be able to browse them without any problem.  Just as you would be able to browse the 35mm reels of microfilm held in the Dunfermline Central Library, by using their Microfilm Reader.

    The thinking is that if this exercise/experiment does prove to be successful, it would therefore be a heck of a lot more convenient (and comfortable) for people to use this system of viewing the old newspapers than having to visit the Central Library in Dunfermline.

    I really do need, and respectfully ask for, your feedback and comments on how this wee exercise works out.

    If it works out OK, then I’ll put the rest of the pages of the West Fife Echo (and also The Dunfermline Journal) I have on this site, where they will be FREELY available to everyone and anyone with access to the internet.
