At the Water's Edge: Photographs from the MacKinnon Collection at National Library of Scotland now to 15 Feb 2020

A display of captivating 19th and early 20th century photographs from the MacKinnon Collection illustrates life beside Scotland's coastal waters.

Tourism, fishing and industry are some of the themes of the pictures on show. Historic images chart the changing Scottish landscape and capture our relationship with Scotland's seas and waterways.

The MacKinnon Collection includes more than 14,000 photographs dating from the 1840s to the 1940s. It was jointly acquired by the National Library of Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland in 2018, with support from the Scottish Government, the National Heritage Lottery Fund and the Art Fund.
