Excerpt from The History of Galashiels
The modern portion of Galashiels being practically a growth of the Victorian Era, it may be assumed that ample information regarding its history would be readily accessible, and that the selection of fitting material, rather than the pro curing of it, would prove the more difficult task. This, however, is not the case. So far as the earlier half of the present century is concerned, little of an authentic nature is to be found Oral testimony and tradition are equally unreliable, and records of any description are extremely scarce.
