Description:

Most of the photographs in this book date from the 1890s to the 1930s and with a few exceptions are bereft of the motor traffic which clutters the roads around Loch Lomond today. The photographs show forgotten, but once common, sights: skaters on the frozen loch, farming on the banks with a horse-drawn plough, the British Silk Dyeing factory at Balloch, the grandeur of Tullichewan Castle, steamers on the loch and four-in-hand coaches and much more - an insight into a time when tourism was more exclusive and moved at a slower pace.
