Stevenson Film Archive
Member Robert Stevenson shared his family archive of films spanning the 30s, 40s and 50s. The majority taken in Cine Film by Stanley Cameron Taylor, opposite and a close family friends of the Stevenson Family. Stanley started work in Tweedies garage in New Cumnock. Later on he worked for Scottish Aviation at Prestwick. He lived at Clach-Ian, 2 Barrhill Terrace at the time of the Winter Storm in Cumnock film and we think that he features in that film. All films are and are all © Robert Stevenson.
