Patricia McNae

“I fed 72 cattle with turnips, every day”

Patricia came to Dumfries at 6 months old. When talking with us, she focused on her time working in and around Dumfries. She told us how she cycled up the high street on a daily basis to work in Miss Reid’s and Binns before becoming pregnant. She then moved out of town and told us how she looked after 72 cattle, which she was very fond of.
