Old Coldingham & St. Abbs

Author : Lawson Wood

Cover : paperback
Price : £7.99

With spectacular images from the collections of local photographers John Wood and Robbie Nesbit, this book provides a fascinating insight into the lives of Scottish East Coast fisher folk in the later part of the 19th and the early 20th century. Many of these pictures have never before been published and some lay unheeded for decades in a garden shed before being rescued and restored. Included are unforgettable sights such as the horse and cart “traffic jam” caused by a coal truck and a log drawn by three Clydesdales outside the Anchor at the turn of the century, the Swiss motor vessel Nyon breaking up in a storm on Meg Watson’s Rock in November 1958 and the launching of the Helen Smitten lifeboat on 25th April 1911.
