Fishing Prints

My grandfather James More Horsburgh recently died but left behind a great legacy of art. His prints can be viewed on www.morehorsburgh.co.uk along with a brief summary of the man. Please do take a look into a world of another era.

My father remembers a James More coming to the house quite a few years back,was he working on a dredger at some time? A dredger came to dredge Pittenweem harbour and a relation of my grandfather was working on it. He was definatly a More. Are you some relation?

Burghead relations

My Aunt, Moreen, telephoned and left a message for Bill and Greta More, just after my Grandad passed away. But that was the only telephone number she could find in her Dad's address book.
