Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Ardrossan

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Ardrossan located in North Ayrshire, Scotland. I hope these might be of interest to folks with Scottish ancestry. Noted natives and past residents included; John Kerr FRS, born 17 December 1824, died 15 August 1907, who was a Scottish physicist and a pioneer in the field of electro-optics. He is best known for the discovery of what is now called the Kerr effect; Calum Kennedy, born 1928, died 2006, was a popular exponent of Scottish Gaelic song in the 1950s and 60s, ran a hotel in Ardrossan towards the end of his life; Flying Officer Kenneth Campbell, recipient of the Victoria Cross, came from Ardrossan
