Lost Edinburgh in Colour PDF ePub eBook

Lost Edinburgh in Colour free pdf This fascinating compilation of early Edinburgh photographs takes us on a tour of Scotland's historic capital city, but rather than picturing the historic scenes dating back to the 1850s in the traditional sepia and black and white monochrome, new realism is given here by reproducing the images in full colour. We can therefore explore not only some of Edinburgh's famous landmarks, such as the tourist hub of the Royal Mile, but also less frequently pictured aspects of the city, including its street characters, local markets, shops and theatres. A city blended into the countryside, with Castle Rock at its epicentre, the marriage between nature's sculpture and man's architecture in Edinburgh is captured beautifully in this unique collection. Principally sourced from ancient albums and private collections, Lost Edinburgh in Colour unites a wealth of rare and unpublished images to reveal that the Edinburgh of a century and more ago was as colourful and vibrant a city as it is in the present day.

About Liz Hanson

Liz Hanson was born in Kidderminster in 1950, but moved to Edinburgh in 1969 and has lived in the Scottish Borders for 35 years. She qualified as a medical technician and her career in microbiology was spent between Edinburgh hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. Photography has been a hobby since her teenage years (and still is a passion), and due to redundancy, she started a small business making photographic cards of Borders landscapes. This became established, and is still operative to this day, but has expanded into the production of books.
