Elgin Through Time is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this part of Scotland. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Elgin, the famous streets and the famous faces, and what they meant to the people of Elgin throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set.

Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of Elgin, as the author guide us through the town's streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Elgin all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous town. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
