Oswald's Fans
Friday 01 September 2017

One of the rewards of being a Gallery Guide at the Stirling Smith is reading the lovely thank you letters sent to the Guide team after a Primary Class has visited the Museum.

The young visitors appreciate "the key the Jacobites actually held", "learning to make coffee with a grinder", "holding the big sword" and of course "the oldest football".

But the most beloved is the Smith's greatest ambassador, Oswald the cat, especially when he tries to eat somebody's lunch! One of his many imaginative portraits can be seen here, by a member of P6 from Blackridge Primary School.

It's good to know that the art of letter writing is alive and well!
