Our new display on the Stairwell showcases a fantastic collection of photographs from East Ayrshire Council’s Archives. The photographs show the changing face of Kilmarnock from the 1930s to the 1970s, often showing buildings and streets on the verge of demolition or redevelopment.  From Riccarton, up to Netherton, the town centre, to Bonnyton and the High Street area, these evocative photographs show a town in transition.
