Mactaggarts 1969 Annual Report

Below is the Mactaggarts 1969 Annual report from Barry Dixon who has digitized it below for archiving it on the Gurus website. Earlier in the week, Barry published the digitized version of the Mactaggarts 1968 Annual Report.

It is fascinating reading, and the 2 annual reports give an excellent snapshot of the Mactaggarts business over a two-year period. Also the inclusion of the rainfall chart on the back cover is interesting.
