Robert Smail's Printing Works in Innerleithen

Just a quick word of praise for David Rudram's article on a print works in Peebleshire, in this month's Ancestors magazine (issue 75, November 2008).

The two page article details the history of Robert Smail's Printing Works in Innerleithen, in existence from 1866, and today run as a museum trust. David works at the museum as a guide and as its honorary archivist, and his passion for the place comes across in a well written and nicely illustrated piece, describing the background to the firm and some of the records still in existence which outline the work that it previously carried out.

If your ancestor was from the Borders, and you fancy reading about an interesting slice of life from the area, then hurry quickly to your newsagent to pick the magazine up, as the next issue is due out soon!

And if you fancy a visit, the museum is located at 7-9 High Street, Innerleithen, tel: 0844 493 2259.
