Description:

This intriguing pictorial history takes a look back at the days when Fife was home to a wide variety of traditional industries including mining, farming, fishing, pottery and textile factories, shipping and shipbuilding. Featuring 170 archive images, each accompanied by and informative caption, this volume recalls the people who lived and worked here - the linen workers at their looms, the farmers feeding lambs, the miners heading to their collieries and the fisherman with their nets - all of which paint a vibrant picture of a way of life now largely disappeared. While a number of fife businesses have been handed down through several generations, adjusting and modernizing as necessary over the years, many have finally closed after decade of trade but remain fondly remembered.
