Times gone by

Stumbled on these old views of Campbeltown and posted to see if anyone can shed any light on them. Looking at the cars and clothes i would think they were taken in the sixties.

Regarding the date's of the photo's, the first car (you can just see the front of) is a Morris or Austin 1100, the Morris was launched on 15 August 1962, the Austin was launched in August 1963. Think that give's a good idea of the date for that particular photo, as a side note my dad had a few "1100's" and for there day were quiet good. One I will always remember was a red Austin 1100 (registration 23 WVO) that I partly demolished a wall with just a few miles south of Inverrary around 1964/65 on my way home from a holiday in Campbeltown, no injuries but a fair bit of damage to the offside of the car.
