Hello and welcome to the website.
I’m not selling anything or anyone, just making a collection of items which interest me and which may interest you too. So there is history and books and music, photographs by me and others, some school stuff and a repeat of some previously published articles. I hope you find something to enjoy.
Mr. Mackay’s Legacy
My book was published in April 2010. It tells the story of Perth’s St. John’s School from its beginnings in 1832 until 2010 when it was preparing for a move to a new and up-to-date site.
