THE JIM MAIR COLLECTION

Jim Mair

Newmilns man Jim Mair, a keen historian, collected memories, photographs and memorabilia of Newmilns since he was a small child. His niece, Marie Johnson has agreed to write a piece for this website on the man himself - something which is hard to find amongst his vast collection. Sadly Jim died in 2007, but his collection was passed to Ayrshire Archives so that many could benefit from his life's work in years to come.
