A 17 page pictorial guide to Maybole and the area surrounding it. Look into the windows of the stores on High Street! A nice collection of photos of a bygone day. A short chapter an different look at the town. Short chapters with descriptions of many places in and about Maybole. This really gets interesting toward the middle of the article. One that the town fathers would prefer not to have been written!
