' - Pictures of things and places have an immediacy that is difficult to gain from a monochrome image. And pictures of people given the same colour treatment bring them back to life in a remarkable way. It is amazing to look at images of kipper girls in Peterhead or quarrymen at Rubislaw Quarry and see the real people in the pictures - ' Undiscovered Scotland ---------- '...this fascinating book. ... Whilst the text is absorbing it is the photographs that show so much detail that forms the mainstay of this book and they reveal so much. ...the excellent photographs can be seen to their full impact. A book to dip into at leisure to see a way of life, so important and gone forever'. Highland News, North Star and Lochaber News ---------- '...Hannavy continues his social exploration of both industrial and domestic situations'. Evergreen 'The Way We Were sets out to explore people, places, lifestyle, employment and leisure pursuits, which together made Victorian and Edwardian Scotland the place it was. ... Hannavy offers an extensive visual collection in excess of 200 pictures, and provides text that brings these beautiful images and the people within them to life. Whether read from cover-to-cover or dipped into at random, this book is certain to have wide appeal'. History Scotland ---------- '...really bring the images to life and allow us to connect with the people depicted and those who took or sent these images. This is a thoroughly interesting book, which packs in a lot of information on life and changes at the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth centuries. ...lovely introduction to the beginnings of mass popular photography as a way of recording transition, events and characters'.
