Re: Peterhead Drill Hall
- Hi Carolyn,
The old drill hall was there when I lived in Peterhead as a young
loon in 1952, I can't remeber when it was knocked down but it would
probably have been in the late 60's.
I have just spoken to the curator of the museum and she also thought
it was the late 60's when it was demolished, they have pictures of
the drill hall but can't date them, the phone number of the museum is
01779477778, I have found them extremely helpful in the past.
