Here are pictures of everything from a cattle market in the High Street to elephant tightrope walking in our book on Forfar. Blacksmiths and shopkeepers posing outside their shops, weavers from Boath's works and an elegantly dressed wedding group in front of one of the town's co-op's are among the many subjects selected. George Brodlie's ropeworks and the Strathmore Woollen Company illustrate the town's manufacturing history, while many of the pictures show lost streets and buildings, along with events and personalities from the town's past.
