Days gone by – stationmaster retires

This great photograph was handed into The Oban Times anonymously so we posted it on Facebook and asked if anyone knew about it. We had a fantastic response, with it being identified as Oban railway station. Most notably among the respondents was Jessie MacKenzie, who said: ‘Not sure of date maybe early 1970s. Robert Gibson, stationmaster, on the right, getting his retirement gift from Alex MacCallum. Also in the picture are Andrew Braid, Archie Graham, Jimmy Christie, Neil Macdougall, Bobby Duncan, Bill Broadfoot, Dick Cornelious, James Mackechnie, Herbert Blainey, Willie Power, Willie Currie, Duncan Campbell, John MacKechne, Ali Campbell, Kenny MacIntyre, Jackie Dryden, Micky MacKinney. There’s a couple I missed as I can’t see faces clearly.’ Myrette MacIntyre also identified Stevie Thomson and Robert McCallum, while Cathy Robertson said: ‘My dad Tommy Duncan, five from the right.’
