Then and now

Thanks go to Thelma Hardie for sending us this old photo of a waterfall on the Kinness Burn. After a bit of searching we managed to identify the location beside the Botanic Gardens near Cockshaugh Park. From the clothing of the two children it looks to be about 1960.

    With regard to the name, Thelma Hardie, I wonder if she or anyone knows of a painter of Law Mill in the 1950s who signed paintings: D. HARDIE? My mother, whose grandmother lived at Law Mill, brought a painting of Law Mill to NZ in 1957 and had it framed here. I would be very grateful to anyone who knows about the painter and the year the painting may have been done. I can email a photo of the painting to anyone who gets in touch.
