In the early 1900s, two Campbeltown brothers, Charles and Dennis MacGrory, indulged their passion of photography and left us an invaluable legacy: images of people, buildings, landscapes and a whole way of life in Campbeltown which have all long since disappeared.
The photographic archive of some 3000 images is held by Argyll and Bute Library Service, who gave the author complete access to select around 80 images for this book which is complete with explanatory captions.
The photographs selected - many of which have never been published before - include Longrow, Main Street with the Campbeltown cross in the centre, the Machrihanish to Campbeltown Light Railway, shops including the MacGrory's outfitters, farming scenes, and the Old Quay with the herring fleet and steamers such as the Davaar and the Queen Alexandra.
