Price : £10.00

Comprising several parishes, the Howe of Alford includes Alford, Keig, Tough, Tullynessie and Forbes as well as various landed estates and big houses. Essentially agricultural these villages also had smiths, bakers, tailors and other small shops and traders. The selection of photographs in this collection very much reflects this and the gentle pace of the village and rural life before the motor car, but not the train. Page 10 has a super photograph of a bustling Alford Station – two locomotives, buses, lorries and most unusually a view of the turntable. The book is packed with images of shops, village life, social history and transport.
