Fanny Mullins (nee Bald)
« on: Sunday 16 February 20 21:17 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
A few years ago I found a photo on the internet of my Granny, Fanny Mullins, standing at the level crossing gate. I believe this was at Winkston, near Peebles, where she was the crossing keeper.
Unfortunately (and stupidly), I didnít make a note of where this was or print off the photo.
Iím pretty certain she was called Frances on the photo.
Iíve tried several times to find it, to no avail.
Can anyone help, please?
Thank you,

Shona

What year was the photo taken (roughly) and how old was Granny at the time ie little girl or grown up?

If you search for Winkston photos and railway crossing some old black and white images come up.

Sorry if you have already tried that but if not a look through those may find the one you want.

Was it on somebody's family tree?

Hello, thanks for the help!
Granny was an adult when the photo was taken, late middle age I would say. Iím sure I remember her wearing a Ďpinny  í in the photo and wearing glasses.
Iíve tried ĎGooglingí variants of Winkston, railways, Peebles railway etc, but the photo hasnít ever reappeared!
Iím certain the photo wasnít within a family tree.
Iím so grateful for the prompt responses!

Do you live in that area Shona?

Maybe the local library would be able to help or perhaps a local family history group if there is one.

Hope you find it  :)

PS Was it a black and white or colour photo?

Since I don't know what Fanny looks like did you look here, there dozens of photos?

Hello and thank you to all the people who have responded so far.
I donít live in the area, I live in the South of England, but may follow up the local history group idea.
Iíve looked at the Ďrailscotí photos.....no luck!
Iíll keep trying!!

Thanks,
Shona

P.S the photo was a black and white.......taken maybe 1950s onwards? Granny died in 1980 in Peebles.
