Scottish Six Days 1963…Old colour photos…

Thanks to our photographer, Jimmy Young, we are pleased to exhibit a few old colour photographs taken at the start of the 1963 Scottish Six Days Trial on 1st May. The location is the Gorgie Cattle Market, Edinburgh (Now known as The Corn Exchange)

We don’t know who the original photographer was, but he may have resided in the West Lothian area. We are aware that copyright is valid up to 70 years after the demise of the photographer. We don’t wish to breach any copyright laws by exhibiting these photos and we don’t believe they were taken by a professional photographer due to the quality.
