The detailed captions in this informative book provide a wealth of insight into the history of the fishing villages of Scotlands North East coast. The roll of the fishwives who would walk distances of up to 20 miles in a day with a creel of fish on their backs for sale or dig for bait for their men on the shores of Cruden bay was crucial to the subsistence of families. In later times the Great North of Scotland Railway and Bram Stoker helped to popularise the area as a tourist attraction. The railway built the enormous Cruden Bay Hotel and in 1899 an inaugural Cruden Bay Open Professional Golf Tournament was held.
