Provost James Allan of Bo'ness
« on: Saturday 01 July 06 18:18 BST (UK) »
I am seeking any information about the mining contractor James Allan of Bo'ness, who eventually rose to be a magistrate and Provost of the town.

He donated an impressive drinking fountain to the town to celebrate Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887.

I would be grateful for any assistance with this.
