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.
LATEST ADDITIONS - July 2016
This month another
School Photo for you to enjoy - Skene Street
from 1953. I always find these fascinating - and I hope you do too!
Two more photos of Aberdeen from yesteryear. St
Nicholas Street from 1963 (a busy Saturday by the looks of it!) and at
the opposite extreme, the destruction of Mounthooly Street in 1968.
You'll find them both in my Local Photos page.
Following on from my series reporting the
scandal at Nellfield Cemtery I found a
small article from 1899 showing a problem at Trinity Cemetery in which
it was found that there were two 'extra' coffins found in a grave. Read
the whole story on my Odds & Ends 3
page. The family involved are named Lawson (of Banff and Aberdeen) so if
that's your name or you have ancestors of that name I'd recommend you
check this one out.
Well we're most definitely in the summer season.
The gardens and countryside are colourful and bright so it's a real
treat to walk/cycle/drive around. If you've been thinking of visiting
the area then now's the time to do it! Long days and short nights give
you the ultimate chance to enjoy our area to the max.
That's it for this month. Remember there are
regular updates - so don't forget to come back and check them out!
