Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0004723503, Paperback)
In this evocative account of how people lived, worked and played in Scotland through the 20th century, the major news stories affecting Scotland from every year are covered: some are familiar, some will jog the memory, others will remind us of events. The book also includes a record of the minutiae of everyday life, expressed in a timeline running throughout the text that records cost-of living data, famous births and deaths and other notable events. With large-scale reproductions of actual front pages, together with many other illustrations drawn from the "Record's" archives, this study reflects the experiences that have shaped the Scottish nation over the past 100 years. Collectively, they make up the record of the century and represent a memory of the era about to pass.
