Do you find lists fascinating? - I Do!

Every now and again I find a list pertaining to local history. I then spend hours trying to find someone or something that I recognise. Sad isn't it? Well, perhaps you too suffer from the same affliction. So go on - have a good browse!

With the development of the railways and better roads Stonehaven became a popular holiday destination in the 19th century. Many well-heeled families would spend a week or two at one of the hotels or boarding houses within the town. Regular announcements would be published in the local paper to herald their arrival. Do you recognise anyone?
