It raises a smile to see these now, and I hope no-one is offended by them. It is important to remember that just thirty-some years ago, there were many in the media and in the general populace making disparaging comments about curling. Women's curling especially was seen as something of a joke. How things have changed!
But it seems that back in 1979 when the programme was being put together before the event itself got underway, the women on the Scottish organising committee were happy to poke fun at themselves in this way, and they were very aware of how (some) others saw them!
I wonder if all the foreign competitors and visitors appreciated the Scottish sense of humour!
There's a hidden meaning here, I'm sure!
How things have changed.
And a nod to the even more distant past!
The images have all been scanned from the event programme.
