Historic Photographs Details
This photograph shows Aberdeen beach north of Footdee. The image is dated as from 1906.

Construction of the beach esplanade began in 1898. The rocky dunes show it had not yet reached this point of Aberdeen's beach front.

In the early 20th century the esplanade only went as far south as slightly beyond the Bathing Station, the chimney of which can be seen in the distance.

The structure protruding above the dunes in the centre of the image may be a flagpole at the gun battery then located on Queen's Links.
