As one of Scotland's most historically significant cities, Perth has played an important role in the nation's story. Nor surprisingly for a place that has seen continuous human settlement for thousands of years, much has come and gone over the centuries. The followers of Knox and Cromwell, and later the slim clearers, planners and developers, each had their own reasons for taking a pickaze to Perth, but the cumulative effect of their actions has been to convert most the ancient city to rubble and road infill. This is the first book to consider just how much of Perth has been lost over the centuries and why. Superbly illustrated with over 100 old photographs and engravings, this book makes lost Perth visible again to new generations.
