The Scots

£7.99

Available in Stock

Illustrated with over 230 early photographs, Richard Oram's history of Scotland in the century after the invention of photography in 1839 looks in turn at Scottish people and places, rural life, work and industry, transport and leisure. Far from nostalgia, the book evokes the reality of profound division and change throughout the century: the photographers celebrate historical landscapes and engineering and industrial triumph, and record rural poverty and urban slums alongside the elegant lifestyle of the elite.
