The picturesque market town of Montrose, located on the windswept coast of Angus between Dundee and Aberdeen, offers all the charm of a seaside resort alongside a range of impressive buildings. Over the centuries, affluent landowners, wealthy merchants and rugged sea captains have come and gone from Montrose, and the early success of such townspeople is evident in the striking architecture. It has frequently been said that Montrose is a place of high antiquity, and that it witnessed many stirring and historic events. With such a rich history, the town has a fascinating story to tell. A good way to tell this tale is through picture postcards, which show how life once was and the changes that have taken place. During the early years of the twentieth century, the sending of postcards became almost a national obsession, and today these provide a wonderful record of the buildings, streets and people of times gone by. Montrose: The Postcard Collection captures the coastal town of Montrose, as well as neighbouring villages Ferryden and Hillside, in all their former glory through a selection of old postcards from the author's own collection, many of them in colour.
