Old Photograph High Buckholmside Galashiels Scotland
Old photograph of shops, buildings and people on High Buckholmside in Galashiels, Scottish Borders of Scotland. The town's coat of arms shows two foxes reaching up to eat plums from a tree, and the motto is Sour Plums pronounced in Scots as soor plooms. It is a reference to an incident in 1337 when a raiding party of English soldiers were picking wild plums close to the town and were caught by Scots who came across them by chance and slaughtered them all
