Every town and city has great stories to tell. They all have local heroes and terrific tales about the people and industries of the area. In this book, Frank Beattie has tapped into the rich history of history of his native Kilmarnock and has brought together a wide selection of fantastic facts, which cover not just the nationally important events such as one of the world's first timetabled railway passenger services, but the quirky, like the fact that Kilmarnock celebrates Halloween on the last Friday of October rather than 31 October, like everyone else. In The Kilmarnock Fact Book you will learn about great industries such as Johnnie Walker, Saxone and BMK, which were all founded in Kilmarnock, and also about people like Sandy McCrone, a blind man who climbed up the scaffold around a church and stuck a potato on the beak of the weathercock just to win a bet.
