Aberdeen Harbour Mouth
Aberdeen Harbour Mouth photographed from the Torry side of the River Dee Estuary, showing Footdee.

Across the water, the light, single storey building with the battlement style roof is the harbour's old custom house. In 1986 chef Didier Dejean converted this building into the Silver Darling restaurant.

Silver City Vault user Ed Fowler suggests that the temporary structure behind the custom house was used to cast concrete blocks for an extension to the North Pier between 1869-77.

The image is also interesting for showing the industrial buildings around Footdee and Aberdeen Beach before much of its later development.

Futhermore the tall structure on the far right looks like a taller version of the sewer ventilation shaft known as Scarty's Monument. The structure may have been shortened after construction.
