This site is far from static. Every month there
are new additions (see below), so there is always something new to
discover. I usually have at least one series of articles in progress
along with a selection of other bits and pieces.
If you are a new visitor I hope you will come back
again. To my many regular visitors, thanks for your continued support
and kind words. Thanks also for all the feedback I have received. A
number of features have been incorporated as a result of these. Further
constructive comments are always welcome. You can e-mail me
Finally a number of visitors have asked me about
permission to use material from the site and other legal things. In
order to clarify this you will find the terms and conditions of use on
my contents page.
Two more School Photos
for you to enjoy this month. My thanks (again!) to Mike Kidd for
sharing his school photos - this time from his years at Skene Square
School. The classes are 1959/60 and 1963. Even better - Mike has
supplied almost every name for those two years - always a great bonus!
Back to the city for my Local Photos
this month. This time I have King Street near the Arts Centre from 1973
and the Shiprow from 1978. It's only when you look at these that you
realise how many changes take place over the years. On a daily basis
everything seems much the same but given a bit of time....
My internet provider has decided it no longer
wishes to offer webspace to it's customers so unfortunately this site
will disappear on or sometime after the 16th July. I've thought about
transferring elsewhere but have finally decided it's time to retire. I
can't recall exactly when I started this site but it must be about 20
years ago - so not a bad run! Over that time I've answered hundreds of
queries and hopefully helped some of you get past a 'brick wall' or two.
It's been great fun and a pleasure to correspond with some lovely
people. I hope you'll all continue with your research - and if you've
not visited the North-East of Scotland yet then start saving! If you
choose the summer months you'll find some of the most beautiful
countryside and gardens, along with historic churches, graveyards and
This will be my last update. If you've not
explored all of the site yet then I urge you to do so. There's lots of
dusty corners but sometimes there are gems to be found within the
My best wishes to you all - and keep researching!
