St Andrews is famous the world over as being the home of golf but although golf clubs are still designed and manufactured here, there's a lot more to the town than drivers and putters. The university, the third oldest in the English-speaking world, was founded in 1413 as a seat of religious learning and has grown to be a major local employer and world-renowned centre of excellence for research and teaching. The town used to be home to numerous breweries, and although these all closed down following a period of decline after the Reformation, the industry has been revived with the St Andrews Brewing Co., which now brews a number of local ales that are served in the many pubs and restaurants. Tourism is the largest employment sector in the town and people travel from all over the world not only to play on the famous local courses or to watch competitions, but also to experience its rich and often bloody religious past. St Andrews at Work explores the life of this Fife town and its people, from pre-industrial beginnings through to the present day in a fascinating series of contemporary photographs and illustrations, that show how the town has continued to grow throughout the years.
