Sunday Morning in Seneca

Preaching to the Choir

How many people get up at 5:30 in the morning, on a Sunday, with intent to explore their own town? (Then realize the sun comes up later in these parts than further north and out on the coast – oops.) (Seneca, KS, 04:37PDT / 06:37CDT, June 19, 2016, SX700 1/1250s f4.5 ISO200)

What I hope to accomplish here is to give you a glimpse into a typical small farming town as seen by an outsider seeing it for the first time and hopefully in a new light. (Fairview Mills Elevator, Seneca, KS, 04:34 PDT, SX700 1/320 f4 ISO125)

For centuries Linlithgow was an important leather-making centre and so, like Selkirk, could be somewhat smelly. All the traditional industries have gone, though they are commemorated in the various guilds with their deacons. Linlithgow still elects a Provost; and the people of the town, regardless of sex, are Black Bitches. A black bitch appears on the town’s coat of arms. There are actually two coats of arms, the second portraying St Michael having a go at the dragon. King David I built a house here in the 12th century, but like most Border or Central towns it suffered from the visits of English armies. They burnt the town in 1424. But with the Stuarts came prosperity. James I began the building of the palace and most of his successors added to it. Mary Queen of Scots was born in the palace in 1542.
