dc.descriptionShort interview with Bill Carrick (born c.1927) who spent his early childhood in Lochmaben before moving out to the farm, Kirkmahoe, when he was 12. Bill recalls the town and the past-times he enjoyed in Lochmaben as a boy. He remembers the summer football league (which often ended in a brawl when local rivals were playing each other) and the sheep going by truck to the slaughterhouse in Lockerbie. He said that he had heard that Lochmaben was a rough place in the past and relates anecdotes about this. Bill also recalls how important the railway was to Lochmaben. When he was a coalman, he collected his coal from the station and then delivered it round about the town and surrounding farms. Towards the end of the interview he talks about the introduction of tractors and the work done by the blacksmith.
