Old Film, Aberdeen History And Photos From The Past

Aberdeen is Scotland’s third most populous city. Found where the Rivers Dee and Don meet the North Sea, the port city is a key part of the offshore petroleum industry.

The videos of Aberdeen past and present reflect its magnificent grey stone buildings which gave rise to its colloquial name ‘the Granite City’.
