General Photos 1990s

Early 1990s

For a long time Galloway has used "The Galloway Beltie" as its symbol. When Dumfries and Galloway was created as a Scottish region, there were plans to use the Barnacled Goose as the symbol for the larger area.

People of Gatehouse were outraged and feelings were aired on a "That's Life" show on TV. The smart young man in the kilt outfit is Kevin Devine, of the That's Life team. He presented That's Life between 1991 and 1995, so that dates these pictures as early 1990s.
