Description

"Dunfermline - The Post War Years" is a pictorial record of the life and times of the City and Royal Burgh as it emerged from the years of austerity and rationing after World War Two. Bert McEwan's carefully researched and highly illustrated work looks at the events, buildings and personalities that shaped the development of the city from generation to generation in the 20th century and into the new millennium. The people of Dunfermline have a right to be proud of the historical background on which the city is founded and which makes it a tourist attraction. Yet it is through the endeavor of its workers, shopkeepers and industrialists that Dunfermline has been able to maintain its position in Scotland as a desirable place to live, work and indulge in recreational activities. This book looks at all aspects of modern life in the city, including housing, health, industry, heritage and sport. It will be essential reading and reference for everyone who lives in the city and has experienced half a century of transformation.
