AROUND SCOTLAND'S SHORES

JOHN HANNAVY    Book Number: 86730    Product format: Paperback

Many have a fascination with the richness and variety of Edwardian postcards and here they have been hand painted to bring them to life showing people at work, play, getting on and off ferries, trains and coaches, and holiday resorts crowded to bursting point. See the crowded decks of a pleasure steamer in Leith Docks, the Pleasure Gardens at Kirn giving centre stage treatment to the African youth with a large parasol, the New Esplanade along the coast, coach and horses taking tourists to Oban, Mallaig and Ullapool, the Shetland Islands where huge numbers were employed in the whaling industry. High quality photography, often carefully hand coloured and then printed often in Saxony using the latest lithographic techniques, this is truly a gallery from the past, history in living colour. With single or double page spreads of over 100 towns and villages from Kirkcudbright and Stranraer to Dunbar and Eyemouth. Water, trains, trams or boats are the main themes in this very special gallery of Victorians and Edwardians in colour. 132 page softback, 9¼" x 8".
