19th Century Banffshire in new book

The Keith and District Heritage Group has published a book entitled "Victorian Scenes by William Robb, Solicitor of Keith" which features a series of rare glass plate photographs showing images from Keith, Banffshire and neighbouring counties.  The original full collection of glass plates can be viewed in Moray Council's Heritage Centre in Elgin.

Mr Robb had a great liking for the coast, and included in the book are photographs featuring Buckie, Portknockie, Portsoy and other fishing villages, with the various types of fishing boats of the time identified and named.
