Welcome to 'New Cumnock on CD-ROM'
and the splendid work of Robert Hart.

Robert Hart, a New Cumnockian living in Old Cumnock has captured both the history and the landscape
of the parish and presented them in an easy to use CD-ROM format.

His first work 'Days Gone Bye' contains old photos of people and places in the parish starting from the late
1800's through to the 1960's . The viewer can automate the CD-ROM presentation and watch the slide-
show of the photos unfold at their own pace or can simply 'click' through each photo in turn, spending time
scrutinising the photos for a familiar name , face or place. 'Days Gone Bye' has proved to be extremely
popular both locally and with the ever growing 'family-tree' of New Cumnockians that spans the globe from
Australia and New Zealand to the USA and Canada.

Building on this success Robert has now launched 'GLENAFTON, Flow Gently Sweet Afton' his own
pictorial tribute to the beauty of the glen and its environs, immortalised for ever in verse by Robert Burns. In
'GLENAFTON', Robert presents many of his own spectacular photographs of the glen through the
seasons and again provides the user with an automated slide-show or the facility to 'click' through the
stunning views at their leisure. He has also included an excellent reference map of the locations showing the
directions the photographs were taken from and enabling the viewer to 'click' on any location and access
the photograph of their effortless journey through beautiful GLENAFTON !
