WHSmith Dalkeith's 225 photo relay along with Dalkeith Museum to cleebrate the company's 225th anniversary.

The Dalkeith branch of WHSmith celebrated the company’s 225th birthday last week by taking a step back in time at Dalkeith Museum, Dalkeith Corn Exchange, comparing shop counters from 1792 and now in a public display.

Pictured are WHSmith Dalkeith staff Canelle Friis and Lindsay Lewis, who hope to generate interest in the museum. Manager Betty McKerrecher said: “I didn’t even know it was there, it was lovely.”
