Description:

Alan Brotchie's latest Wheels Around book is typically wide-ranging, featuring aircraft, steam wagons (plus a steam road roller) and even a wheeled device for hauling in salmon nets from the River Dee. More typical are the buses, trains, trams, cars, bicycles and lorries that can be seen going about their business on the city's streets. Culter station, the Murcar trainie (which ran from near Bridge of Don to Murcar Golf Club), busy dock scenes at South Market Street, the launch of a vessel from Hall, Russell's shipyard and the tank Julian on a First World War visit to the city are some of the specific sights to be featured in the book.. As ever, there is as much interest in the backgrounds of the pictures as in the vehicles they show, and this will ensure that Wheels Around Aberdeen appeals to those with a general interest in the city's history as well as transport enthusiasts.
