Barassie Jubilee Book
We recently scanned in a copy of The Jubilee Book published in 1937 to celebrate the first fifty years with a Gold Foil cover by The Standard Press in Kilmarnock the photos were provided by Hector Macdonald whose family still has the shop in Bank Street in Klmarnock.
The understated nature of the introduction is wonderful and given what was to ensue in the following years it certainly represents more than just a snapshot in history.
"This Jubilee brochure, designed for private circulation among the members of Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Club, has been prepared and is issued by authority of the committee, in the belief that members may appreciate a souvenir of an interesting occasion in the history of the club."
We have reproduced the Jubilee Book to be viewed in Barassie's Gallery or for download a copy of the Barassie Jubilee book to print as a PDF to be read in the traditional manner on paper!
We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
