With Memories in Mind

As part of the “With Memories in Mind” project this collection of seven short films features archival photographs of Blairgowrie, it’s people and the surrounding area. Photographs are from the Blairgowrie and Rattray One Voice collection made up from contributions from many local people to whom we pass on our thanks.
Each film has a theme and looks at shops, people, views of the area, pastimes and the berries.

This combination of local photographs ‘of times gone by’ will hopefully soothe, stimulate and bring to mind long-forgotten memories.
