Photograph Album No 14: The Stanley Album


In the archive at Historic Environment Scotland we hold more than 500 unique photograph albums. They are a valuable resource for anyone interested in the built heritage and Scottish local and social history. The albums range in date from the 1850s through to the 1950s and include amateur and professional photographs of towns, cities and buildings as well as family photographs.

The Stanley Album dates to c1889 and contains 55 photographs of buildings, industries, stations and topographical views as well as family portraits, workmen, farming and local groups, including Stanley Cycling Club and a curling club.

The photographs are mostly from Brora, Sutherland and Stanley, Perth and Kinross, however some of them are unidentified. The album also include views of Taymount House and Kintradwell House, photographs from cottages in County Antrim, Northern Ireland and a set of prints from Norway.

The archive can be consulted in our Search Room and through our online resources. This include Canmore where new images and information are added every day through ongoing surveys of Scotland's built heritage, as well as through an active digitisation programme of negatives, prints, albums and drawings.
