A photographic account of how Angus has been transformed through the generations will be unveiled at the latest exhibition to open at The Meffan Gallery in Forfar.
The exhibition, which opens this Saturday, features photographs from Angus Council’s photographic collection. Angus Council possesses one of the most impressive collections of vintage photographs in the country with an archive of over 100,000 images.
For this exhibition some of the most interesting images from the collection have been selected and will be displayed alongside their contemporary digital counterparts.
This juxtaposition of images offers the opportunity to reflect on the past and gives a graphic illustration of how the passage of time has dramatically altered some environments within Angus or, as in some cases, shows how little has been affected.
