Perth in Old Photographs is the most comprehensive title on its subject ever published. Through a lively and intimate mixture of rare photographs gleaned from private and public sources, this book presents a fascinating and wide-ranging record of life in a vibrant settlement which has frequently been at the centre of events in Scottish political history. King James I was murdered in Perth, which was effectively the early capital of Scotland. The book deals with dramatic historical events, along with the occupations and pastimes of the people, including important connections with the whiskey industry, glass-making and textiles. Not surprisingly, given its vast, rich agricultural hinterland, Perth has long had strong links with the farming community, and this relationship is reflected, as are its roles as an administrative centre and a popular tourist destination. The changing architectural face of the town is traced through photographs of varying ages, and due importance is given to the River Tay which flows through the 'Fair City' and which has played its own vital part in Perth's colourful history.
