Product description

This work gives an insight into the many changes which have affected one of Scotland's most interesting areas and its people. It chronicles the many changes which have taken place over the last 100 years and brings to life again the shops, pubs, factories, industries, streets and entire communities which have changed or have been irretrievably lost. The major changes to manufacturing, the maritime trade, coal mining and other industries and their steady replacement by light industry and the retail and services sectors have had a profound impact on the lives of people and their communities. The work also puts these new developments in an historical context spanning 8000 years. It combines archive photographs, a valuable early postcard collection and specially-commissioned new images to chart the growth, development and change of East Fife and its largest town.
