Historic Photographs Details
This is a view of the Shiprow in the early 1900's with the imposing tower of the Town House in the background.

Prior to the building of Union Street in 1880, the Shiprow was one of the most important streets in the city, since it led from the harbour into the Castlegate area - the heart of Aberdeen. It is first mentioned in documents in 1281.

Over the years it became more rundown and, although it had many historic connections, nearly all of it was demolished in the 1950's and 60's. The right hand side is now occupied by a multi-storey car park.
