Description


This fascinating pictorial history takes a look back at the days when Fife was home to a wide variety of traditional industries, including mining, farming, fishing, pottery and textile factories, shipping and shipbuilding. Featuring over 160 archive images, each accompanied by an informative caption, this volume recalls the people who lived and worked here - the linen workers at their looms, the farmers feeding lambs, the miners heading to their collieries, and the fishermen with their nets - all of which paint a vivid picture of a way of life now largely disappeared. While a number of Fife businesses have been handed down through several generations, adapting and modernising as necessary over the years, many have finally closed after decades of trade, but are nevertheless fondly remembered.
