This week’s photograph is challenge for our readers. It resides in our glass negatives archive with the simple caption ‘Duke of Edinburgh and Mr Wilson in Monifieth, September 28, 1949.’
A little digging in the files does not show any Royal visit to the town that year, but we have unearthed one or two clues. The Mr Wilson may be performer Ken Wilson who was touring Angus in 1949, and the poster in the background for dancing duo Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin also ties in with the date as we managed to find a crit of their appearance at the Caird Hall on the weekend in question. Of the Duke of Edinburgh however, there is no mention! Let us know on 01241 435772!
