Britain From Above - Scotland’s Industrial Might 14 Feb 2014 – 27 Apr
Gallery Four

Drawing on many rare and previously unseen aerial images, this exhibition traces the histories of factories, shipyards, mills, ironworks and their surrounding communities over three decades, from 1919 to 1953. Industries are shown operating at peak and also in decline, as the ‘bird’s eye view’ tracks the impact of social, political and economic change on the urban fabric of Scotland, from the Great Depression to reconstruction in the aftermath of the Second World War. While many buildings are now gone, they live on in the memories of workers and their families - the economic powerhouse of the past is the heritage of today.

This exhibition forms part of a UK-wide programme – including exhibitions in England and Wales – showcasing the history and photography of the Aerofilms Collection (the world’s first commercial aerial photography company), which has been saved and preserved for the nation as part of the Britain from Above Project.

An education programme for schools and colleges accompanies this exhibition, for further details please visit www.ads.org.uk
