Aberdeen Remembered documents some fascinating aspects of the city's past combining a varied selection of period photographs and a well researched commentary. The Castlegate is seen before and after the building of the Salvation Army Citadel, whilst a surprisingly modern view (c.1955) shows cattle being driven across George Street in the days when the market and slaughterhouse still operated nearby. There's comprehensive coverage of transport in the city – public and private, horse-drawn and mechanical – as well as several views of the beach and its attractions. A number of pictures recall Aberdeen's industrial heritage, whilst numerous photographs tell the story of the fishing. Some of the city's markets are featured, as are the prefab houses at Ashgrove, an 1875 view of the city's fire brigade, model yachts in Duthie Park and the Girls' Academy.
