The book launch took place on the 12 March 2008 in a fitting historical venue, namely The Goth in Armadale. Many guests attended on that evening to celebrate the achievements of Robert Kerr, on whose research the book is based, and of the History of Armadale Association whose efforts ensured that the book was prepared, completed, edited, published and launched in a manner befitting its importance as a historical record of Armadale's past.
Sybil Cavanagh (guest speaker), Ron Dingwall (HAA chairman), Fiona Hyslop MSP (Cabinet Secretary for Education), Mrs Jessie Kerr, Councillor Stuart Borrowman, Jim McGregor (book editor) and Mary Mulligan MSP are shown at the launch of Robert Kerr's Armadale in Minutes.
Armadale Concert Ensemble provided the evening's musical entertainment after the speeches and presentations.
