Lost Aberdeen: The Outskirts PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lost Aberdeen: The Outskirts free pdf "Lost Aberdeen: The Outskirts" is the companion volume to the highly successful "Lost Aberdeen" which recorded the demise of many fine buildings of the city centre. In "Lost Aberdeen: The Outskirts", the lands which encircle the city, spreading seamlessly round its heart like a great fan, are explored and the losses chalked up and discussed. The journey begins at Gilcomston, the city's first suburb, once a little village of cottages and weavers' sheds, with a hidden industrial enclave and a remarkably elegant west end. Alas, Gilcomston is so lost that it is hard to find today, in spite of its proximity to the city centre. Heading north to Berryden where the demise of the Northern Co-operative Society's imposing complex of meal and barley mills and dairies is regretted. The journey continues, with Morgan guiding the reader from faded landmarks to vanished villages through a poignant and evocative trail of the past.
