This fascinating photography exhibition brings together three different visual takes on the industry that has shaped our area.
Historic Environment Scotland’s Industry + Aesthetics travelling exhibition contains stunning images which form part of the National Record of the Historic Environment. Taken as part of the ongoing mission to document the nation’s industrial places, the photographs were chosen though a crowd sourcing exercise where participants were invited to choose which words, feelings and emotions each of the images conjured up.
Drawing from the Falkirk archives, we take a look back at an evocative selection of photographs by Tom Astbury, documenting local lost and changing industries in the 1980s.
Winners from the Images of Industry competition take a new look at our area – from nature reserves left behind by a titan of the industrial revolution, remnants to old buildings to modern-day innovation in action.
The exhibition is presented by the Great Place Falkirk scheme, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
