Ayr as it was
– and as it is now

Author : Alex Young & Denholm Reid
ISBN : 9781840335644
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

The sea-front town of Ayr is one of the most historically colourful in the region. Once a monastic seat and yet battle hardened by Cromwell's armies it was also the site of the first Scottish parliament held by Robert the Bruce. Remnants of its earlier history can be found throughout the town but in this volume the authors have focused on a comparison of the changes wrought over the last century and a half and the results make fascinating viewing. Always a favourite resort in Victorian times, somehow Ayr has managed to preserve some of that genteel air into our technologically advanced times.
