Fordyce Maxwell, well known local author and a regular on The Berwickshire News’ farming pages for many years, was honoured with the opening of a new venture at Martins of Berwick, Ltd. back in April 1990.

The machine in the picture above is the Crabtree SP65, which was part of a large investment programme at the Book Printing Factory of Martin’s at Spittal. The first book printed by this machine was A Farmer’s Lot, by Fordyce himself. Pictured with him are George and David Martin.
