Arriving in style in Edinburgh, this talk will allow us to recall local household names and revisit the much-loved department stores of Princes Street. For the well-heeled, time will be set aside to browse in Jenners and other such establishments. Meanwhile we'll use the archives to wander the aisles elsewhere and revisit all sorts of institutions around the city which may no longer feature on our streets. By peeking behind the scenes of The Scotsman newspaper building in its heyday, we'll even return to the source of many of these evocative photographs. With our good friends in Scran. Jackie Sangster is a Learning Manager at Historic Environment Scotland who works with archival records including Scran.ac.uk.
