I'm using Photoshop 7. I have the picture up on the screen and click on the TEXT icon , after adjusting,font, size & colour I type in what I wish, it will appear where the cursor was shewing.

However if I'm not happy with where it is positioned is there anyway in which I can drag the text to a new location ?

Sorry Askull, the route you suggest is highly unlikely. At that time the Industrial Estate was the grounds of Strathleven House, owned by the Crum-Ewing family. They did not like intruders , in fact the present foot bridge over the Leven was only built after the grounds were bought and made into an industrial estate in 1947

Do you know if Roman Catholic nuns ran this home around the First World War ? I've been trying to locate the orphanage which my late father and his two younger brothers were in for a few years .

He wouldn't  talk about it, just said it was  something he wished to forget.

All he would say was that he remembered  crossing the bridge across the Leven into Dumbarton in an attempt to escape
