Nos. 2-4  McDonald Road
at the northern end of Haddington Place

Mural on the wall inside McDonald Road Public Library

'The Broughton Mural'

This mural was created by local artists, Charlie Miller (who designed it), Martin Lauder,
David Aitken and Gordon Mitchell, with research by Alice Lauder and John Dickie
and assistance from Elm Birse, Owen Stanesby, Jean and Walter Faulkner.

After being first shown at a Local History Exhibition in 1995, the mural was presented to
 Broughton Local History Society in 1996 to be held on behalf of the local community.
  It can now be seen on the wall of the Nelson Hall at McDonald Road Public Library.

I had to spend some time working with Photoshop to get what I felt was a good balance of colours in the mural.
